Council set to renew contract with ALMO

Westminster Council has agreed in principle to renew its contract with arm’s-length management organisation City West Homes.

City West Homes manages 22,000 homes on behalf of the London borough.

A council spokesperson said tenant satisfaction with estate management has increased by around 20 per cent since the ALMO took over management 10 years ago.

It has also completed its decent homes programme ahead of schedule.

The authority will now consult residents about the proposal to renew the contract and negotiate terms with City West Homes.
