The renewal came after an extensive renegotiation process that identified efficiencies and improvements to the service which will mean a better service for tenants and greater value for money for the council.
Cllr Mitchell said: “Morgan Sindall and Aston Group, alongside the council, are committed to building a strong partnership to create a cohesive approach to serving our tenants and leaseholders. Ensuring all our residents have a decent roof over their heads is a top priority for the council – working with high-quality contractors such as Aston Group and Morgan Sindall helps us achieve this. Our ambition is to ensure that everybody in Waltham Forest enjoys a quality of life, that’s why we are committed to delivering a high level of service to our residents.”
A key part of the contract will be the creation of WalthamFUTURES, a social value initiative opening up training, work experience placements, pre-apprenticeships and employment opportunities for local residents of all ages and backgrounds.
