Key framework agreements signed in Wales

We've continued to strengthen our presence in Wales after signing key framework agreements with two leading social landlords.

Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd, which owns 6300 homes across Gwynedd, and Cartrefi Conwy, which owns 3700 properties in the county of Conwy, have both appointed us to its latest framework agreements.

Frameworks are a pre-completed route to market providing a vehicle to centralise procurement spend. Using frameworks enables organisations to avoid the high cost and possible time constraints of running their own procurement exercises. 

For Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd, we've been appointed to the External Capital Investment Works, which covers all external works carried out to its properties.

Ffrancon Williams, chief executive of Cartrefi Cymunedol Gwynedd, said: “We are very pleased and excited to be working with Novus Property Solutions on our external improvement work project. We will be making substantial investments over the next four years to continue to improve the standards of our houses, and we are glad that Novus Property Solutions will be a part of this. As a result of this agreement, jobs will be created locally and positive contributions will be made to the local economy.”

For Cartrefi Conwy, meanwhile, we've been appointed to the Roofing Adaptations, Landscaping and Fencing framework, as well as the Minor, Reactive Repairs and Heating and Electrical framework.

THE GOVERNMENT STEPS IN TO SAFEGUARD 53,000 NEW AFFORDABLE HOMES

On Monday 6th July, the Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick announced that the Government will be extending the current Affordable Homes Programme until March 2023. Delays in the Construction Industry Construction on new homes to be built under the Government’s £9 billion scheme originally needed to be underway by March 2022. However, today’s announcement means that housing associations and councils have a year longer to begin building these homes. The extension applies to homes which are in contract to be delivered by the current scheme. The Government has made the move in light of unavoidable delays in the construction industry due to coronavirus, where the building of 53,000 new affordable homes has stalled, putting their eventual completion at risk. Providing Flexibility to Councils Mr. Jenrick said that this measure will give housing associations and councils more flexibility “to help them deliver affordable homes.” He added that “building the homes the country needs is central to the mission of this Government.” This latest announcement follows last week’s package of measures, including confirmation that the new £12 billion Affordable Homes Programme will support up to 180,000 new homes, including for shared ownership and social rent. The programme will lead to a further £38 billion in public and private investment in affordable housing. Full details can be seen on the Government website.
