Great Places Housing Group is celebrating after their 100% record in being gas compliant reached the three year mark!
It is a housing sector regulation that properties should have a valid in date certificate at all times – even if homes are empty or un-let. So ensuring that the port-folio of 12.303 properties that this applies to have been compliant every day for three years is some achievement.
Head of Compliance for Great Places, Rick Higgins, said: ““This has never happened before. It represents a real team effort.
“It’s been about good gas admin, working closely with housing teams, always thinking about compliance. It’s about keeping our customers safe. Rachel Nolan and Paul Ward have done an amazing job.
“It is very hard when you are a housing association to ensure gas compliance every day so to keep on top of every single property so that nothing drops off – the team have been brilliant.”
The pressure is now on to keep the record going.
Rick added: “That’s the ambition and we are all determined to keep this going. One day it will drop and we will be devastated – but then we go again.”
