Objective in 2003 when it comes to very first year of our company would be to reach the typical of housing service that in an inspection because of the Audit Commission would receive a “good or better” rating. This outcome would allow the Government to award an initial £19m for financial investment in good homes improvements before 2010.
This first goal had been achieved in February 2004 once the Audit Commission awarded Carrick Housing an “excellent” rating for housing solutions. The federal government then awarded £7.2m of money for the duration as much as 2005. In October 2004 an additional £15.5m was issued by the Government making their particular total financial investment on good homes in Carrick £23.1m.
In '09 Cornwall Council became responsible for landlord solutions from the three former region council’s: Caradon, Carrick and North Cornwall.
After a thorough article on its landlord and housing solution, and thorough tenant assessment, Cornwall Council chose to change Carrick Housing to create an innovative new business to control all its council domiciles and deliver the Homechoice and Housing Options and Advice solution. On 1 April 2012 Cornwall Housing began to provide these types of services for the council.
