Winchester Extends Osborne Housing Maintenance Contract

Winchester City Council has awarded Osborne a five-year contract extension, following the success of its existing housing maintenance partnership.

Osborne Property Services will continue to maintain approximately 5,000 homes in a contact worth £12 million over the next five years. 

As well as the maintenance of a number of council buildings, including the Grade II listed Guildhall, Osborne will continue to carry out responsive repairs and prepare empty homes for new residents.

Recent survey results show 98 per cent of customers are satisfied with Osborne’s service, demonstrating the value of the approach of placing the customer at the heart of the business.

Councillor Caroline Horrill, the Portfolio Holder for Housing, said: “The council has always viewed its contract with Osborne as a long-term partnership. Osborne continues to deliver excellent services to Winchester tenants, who have told us how much they value the work that Osborne does. Osborne also continues to be very active within the local community, working with the council by contributing to local resident newsletters and supporting good causes, such as the Trinity centre, Winnall Primary School and Winchester Young Carers.”

Nick Sterling, Managing Director, Osborne Property Services said: “I’m really pleased we’ve been able to secure an extension to our contract with Winchester City Council. Over the next five years we will be able to build on the good work we’ve been doing, as well as to continue our partnership community work, helping make positive differences to residents’ lives.”
