AGM told of another excellent year for Ayrshire Housing

e_MJS4419Attendees at Ayrshire Housing’s annual general meeting have been informed of the Association’s secure financial health and a positive feedback report from its tenants.

Provost of South Ayrshire Council, Helen Moonie was welcomed to the event which took place at Ayr’s Savoy Park Hotel.

Councillor Moonie said: “South Ayrshire Council and Ayrshire Housing have a shared commitment through their partnership to provide yet more affordable housing. I commend the work of the association and wish it every success in the future.”

Chair Rhonda Leith highlighted the excellent findings from the latest independent survey of tenants’ views.

She said: “I’m delighted to see that satisfaction has increased over all the indicators from the already exceptionally high levels in the previous survey. Tenants feel they are getting real value for money. These findings however challenge us to maintain and further enhance our services.”

Rhonda added that the excellent performance was underpinned by continued financial strength: “Ayrshire Housing is well placed to rise to the challenges ahead for example in terms of welfare reform and continued investment in new housing.”

Following postal ballots of all the Association’s tenants and community members, three new Board members were elected.

Rhonda said: “I’m sad to lose some longstanding colleagues but the interest shown in the elections shows how well we are reckoned both by our tenants and the wider community.”
