Croydon to merge housing refurb into £180m deal

Croydon Council is to merge its two housing repair contracts to create a single lucrative borough-wide contract covering some 16,000 properties, H&V News has learned.

The South London Council intends to create a single framework for repairs and maintenance worth up to £180m over 15 years, starting in Spring next year.

A council spokesman told H&V News they were currently “seeking expressions of interest” for the borough-wide contract, which will run until 2029.

Mears Social Housing currently holds the contract for the North and Central areas, in a contract that was billed to expire in August this year.

However, Mears has had its contract extended in a move worth several million pounds, to align the end date with that of the South and East deal.

Mitie currently holds the contract for Croydon South and East.

The agreement covers responsive repairs, general building and voids reinstatement services, as well as gas servicing, electrical works and general building work.
