Logue seeks assurances after collapse of housing maintenance contracts
29 Jan 2019 11:38 AM
Derry Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has sought "urgent answers" from the Housing Executive after plans to award £1 billion of maintenance contracts collapsed. The party’s housing spokesperson said the maintenance work was vital to families waiting for repairs to their homes and to the many workers employed under these contracts. Cllr Logue (pictured) added: "The collapse of the process to award the contracts is therefore deeply worrying. "Our party has written to the Chief Executive of the Housing Executive to ask for urgent answers on what has gone wrong and to seek assurances that planned maintenance work will be carried out and to confirm how many residents will be waiting on much-needed repairs and also which jobs will be impacted.”
