Ashfield Homes decision delayed

A REPORT to help decide the future of Ashfield Homes has been delayed until the end of the month.

Ashfield Homes is a company set up to manage and maintain houses on behalf of Ashfield District Council in Hucknall and the rest of the district.

But, as reported previously in the Dispatch, councillors are faced with deciding whether to keep the company or revert to in-house take management of its housing stock to save money.

A report put together by senior managers at the council and Ashfield Homes is being put together to help councillors come to a conclusion.

However, due to such interest from employees, trade unions and the media, the report will not now be made available until a meeting on Thursday July 28.

A consultation is being carried out with tenants.
