10/07/2015 - Housing Improvement Agency contract award

The Head of Housing and Property submitted a report (previously circulated now appended) which detailed the proposed arrangements for a Home Improvement Agency that is part funded through a contract with Oxfordshire County Council.


Cllr Seamons, Board Member for Housing introduced the report.  He explained that the Home Improvement Agency provides services to enable disabled and elderly people to remain living in their own homes. He said that he was pleased to report that the County Council had asked to extend the scope of the contract to include a minor works element previously undertaken by a private contractor.


The Board suggested that there was scope for the Council to do more to publicise the work of the Home Improvement Agency, in terms of the range of valuable services that it provided to allow people to live in their own homes.


The City Executive Board resolved to:


1.        GRANT delegated authority to the Executive Director of Regeneration and Housing, in consultation with the Head of Financial Services and Head of Law and Governance to enter into an appropriate contract for the provision of a Home Improvement Agency.
