December 2019 - be in the know

As we approach the end of 2019, we’d like to share an update on our recent work and wish you well for the festive period and year ahead.

Having renewed and strengthened our relationships with customers, key partners and service providers, we’re now in a great position to deliver our future business strategy.

We’re committed to retaining a local presence in our communities. We reaffirmed this commitment by moving to a new office in Whitby this month on Green Lane, which will allow us to serve our customers from a more accessible, suitable and welcoming environment.

We continue to work with our local authority and developer partners to deliver a range of housing options that meet the needs of our diverse customers and communities. Since forming in October 2018 we have started on site with a number of schemes across the Redcar and Scarborough boroughs, all of which we are looking forward to seeing come to fruition next year.

Have a wonderful Christmas and best wishes for the New Year.

A new way of dealing with complaints

We have started to review and refresh our approach to engaging with customers, allowing us to establish a new relationship between our board and customers, redefine our services in partnership with customers and provide a better range of opportunities for customers to engage with us. One of the first steps towards this is streamlining our complaints procedure.
