Housing Minister welcomes report on Andium

05 February 2015

Jersey's Housing Minister has welcomed the findings of a new report on Andium Homes' housing repairs and maintenance.

The Comptroller and Auditor General (C&AG) found good practice in Andium's approach to planned maintenance. It also welcomed Andium's progress towards involving tenants with decision making.

Value for money

Andium has taken note of the report's findings that more should be done to show value for money on what is known as responsive repairs – repairs done on request rather than as part of a maintenance programme.

Housing Minister Deputy Anne Pryke said "I welcome the report by the C&AG, which clearly sets out that Andium is following best practice in the management of housing repairs and maintenance.

"I am pleased with Andium's commitment to active tenant engagement. The report provides Andium with further direction in terms of delivering value for money and giving tenants the chance to get involved with decisions that affect them."

The Minister has also pledged to bring in new regulations to govern affordable housing providers within the next 12 months.

Affordable housing

"In the future, I will be working with all affordable housing providers to develop a regulatory framework for affordable housing in Jersey, which will make sure all providers are subject to similar review, deliver value for money, meet good practice and achieve high standards for tenants and other service users."

The Minister has regular contact with Andium and has recently visited a number of projects being carried out by the organisation which show progress towards the Decent Homes Standard.

Deputy Pryke has also visited new developments at Andium Court, St Saviour, and Ernest Briard Crescent, St Brelade and has had the opportunity to see Andium's unique work safeguarding vulnerable people.
