Changing times - New approaches: Addressing strategic and operational issues in the repairs and maintenance service
About the Event
The events of the Grenfell Tower tragedy, the COVID-19 pandemic, political agenda and the climate declarations have brought into sharp focus the need for councils to provide good quality, sustainable housing. This combined with the challenging financial position councils are facing is leading local authorities to review and adapt the way that they deliver and carry out their building repairs and maintenance service.
This seminar brings together a range of expert speakers that will explore topics such as approaches to service delivery models, retrofitting and how councils are adopting innovative approaches to supporting tenants and the wider community.
The session also presents an excellent opportunity for delegates to share best practice and gain an overview of how other authorities from across the UK are meeting the challenges head on.
Who should attend?
The unique event is designed to give service directors, managers, elected members and trade union representatives in the service area housing and building maintenance the opportunity to gain knowledge from experts and to discuss strategic and policy issues.
