EMILY BROTHERS SLAMS LIB DEM COUNCIL FOR FIASCO OVER FAILING HOUSING REPAIRS SERVICE
WEDNESDAY 2 JULY 2014

 

Emily Brothers, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Sutton and Cheam, has slammed Lib Dem run Sutton Council for presiding over bad performance in the borough’s Housing Repairs Services. In response to evidence presented at last night’s Housing and Economy Committee (01/07/14) at Sutton Council, Emily Brothers said:
“I’m dismayed by the fiasco surrounding the contracting out of housing repair services.
“I think it is time that Lib Dem Sutton Council got a grip of the situation, whilst Sutton Housing Partnership and Rydon, who hold the contract, both get their act together.
“I’m appalled that local residents are being treated so badly. Many of the problems are so elementary - sending an electrician to fix a leak. Yet Lib Dem Councillors seem more concerned about the consequences of financial penalties for Rydon and their damaged reputation, not the impact on local residents who are experiencing chaos in Sutton’s housing repair services.
“I simply don’t think it is acceptable that 22.5% of all jobs are not completed first time. Rydon had agreed to develop a Remedial Plan, but this has not materialised and the Lib Dem Council just stand by complacently.”
