Chorley Community Housing (CCH) is a registered social landlord, registered with and regulated by the Housing Corporation a Government agency.
»Please click here to find out more about the Tenant Services Authority click here. It is registered as an Industrial & Provident Society with charitable status. The transfer went ahead after tenants voted decisively in favour of the historic changeover in a secret ballot held in Summer 2006.
Promises made to tenants included £26 million of improvements to homes and services in the first five years. And CCH is committed to improving homes and services well beyond this. The improvement programme has now been greatly accelerated and every CCH home will have a new bathroom and ktchen fitted within three and a half years. In addition any other work that needs to be done on individual homes such as rewiring, will all be done at the same time.
New services that are up and running include a handyperson service for sheltered schemes, estate caretakers, a specialist anti social behaviour team working across the borough and neighbourhood officers co-ordinating services locally. In addition, CCH is providing a budget of £250,000 each year for the next five years for disabled adaptations and has employed its own occupational therapist to reduce the waiting time for assessments.
With transfer, tenants were promiosed a bigger say in how their homes and services were run. The Management Baord of CCH is made up of four tenants, four nominees from Chorley Council and four independent members from the community, chosen for their skills and experience. All the board members are unpaid volunteers.
CCH is also committed to building on the strong foundation of tenant involvement in how services are provided and developed through its resident involvement.
