STATEMENT RE Audit Commission: ‘Cheshire East Council is steering housing strategy in the right direction’


Councillor Jamie Macrae, Cheshire East Council Cabinet member with responsibility for prosperity, said: “We are pleased that the independent Audit Commission has recognised the hard work, dedication and successes of the council’s strategic housing services in what is a difficult economic climate.

“The Audit Commission gives the strategic housing services a one-star rating and describes them as ‘fair’ and having ‘promising prospects for improvement’.

“It praises the Council’s clear vision, positive leadership, strong local partnerships and an effective approach to preventing homelessness and supporting those in housing need.

“It is pleasing that the Commission also recognises that housing is prioritised in Cheshire East to meet residents’ needs, as well as the long-term aspirations and ambitions of the Council, partners and wider community.

“There are improvements to make – but we are determined to keep doing things better.

“As the report points out, Cheshire East Council ‘has come a long way in the past year’ and is building a better understanding of housing needs and taking active steps to improve the overall housing situation.

“As a Council we are determined to give the people of Cheshire East more choice and control over services and resources and help improve the life opportunities and health for everyone in the Borough.

“We are also determined to work with our partners to enhance the Cheshire East environment.”
