coronavirus update

The latest changes in coronavirus restrictions have created new challenges for our repairs service, with more than 10% of our frontline staff being asked to isolate.

We’ve made some temporary changes to services and from Tuesday, 20 July, we will only be handling essential repairs requests until further notice.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

These changes will be reviewed weekly and a full repairs service will be resumed as soon as possible.

Applicants asked for views on how homes are let

13 June 2016 - Latest news

A group of landlords is asking around 18,500 tenants and housing applicants for their views on how homes are let.

Dale & Valley Homes, Durham City Homes and East Durham Homes, which together form believe housing, are part of Durham Key Options (DKO), a lettings partnership that advertises homes to rent across the county.

The scheme, which was introduced in 2009 to offer people looking for a new home a range of housing solutions, is proposing a number of amendments in light of changes within government legislation and people’s differing housing needs.

Kath Wright from Dale & Valley Homes is encouraging people to take part. She said: “If you are currently looking for a home with one of the group’s landlords, this is a fantastic opportunity to tell us how applications should be dealt with and prioritised.”

Joanne Rouse from Durham City Home agrees: “Kath’s right; and with questions on waiting times, transferring to a new home, and housing priority this is a great way to tell us what you think.”

Stephen Lindsey from East Durham Homes concluded: “You have until 5pm on Friday, 12 August to take part, so don’t miss out.”

Residents can complete the survey online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/CDHG_DKO
