Brent Council has agreed to work with Network Homes to support its approach to housebuilding over the next five years.
The council’s cabinet has agreed a co-operation agreement with the housing association, which will allow the two bodies to share knowledge to improve the borough’s housing sector. The intention is that it will help achieve the council’s ambitions to build 1,000 new council homes a year.
The agreement should let Brent Council access Network’s resources and expertise to help deliver across the borough, but will initially apply to four new housing projects – Kilburn Square Clinic and three schemes in Shoot Up Hill at Windmill Court, Claire Court and Watling Gardens.
As well as procurement and construction management, the relationship will also deal with resident consultations and the approach to defects and repairs.
