A COUNCIL housing group is hoping for success in a national scheme.

East Durham Homes (EDH), which manages thousands of home in the Easington district, has been shortlisted as a finalist in three categories in the Tenant Participation Advisory Service Awards 2012.

Its entry made the final in the Excellence in Equality and Diversity Award.

Also, Dennis Gilbertson, from Peterlee, is up for Tenant of the Year for his involvement and commitment in many aspects of housing services, including antisocial behaviour, value for money, estate management and tenancy support.

Zoe McGrath, resident liaison officer for EDH’s repairs partner Morrison, is shortlisted for Tenant/Resident Liaison Officer of the Year for her commitment and enthusiasm when dealing with customers.

Paul Mains, East Durham Homes Assistant Chief Executive said: “To be recognised and shortlisted for three awards is a real achievement for East Durham Homes, Dennis and Zoe.

“It shows that we are committed to partnership working and involving our customers to improve services, so fingers crossed for February when we find out who the winners are.”
