These Awards recognise high-quality developments, services and individuals from the public, private and voluntary sector, while promoting best practice across the county.
Housing Professional category
Deborah Fenton, Director of Housing and Property at EFDC, is shortlisted in the Housing Professional category which recognises an individual who has made a significant contribution to a housing scheme, strategy or service.
The Limes Farm Partnership is shortlisted in the Partnerships category, recognising organisations that have been most proactive in working together to deliver a service or scheme.
Vulnerable client category
And the Homelessness team is shortlisted in the Vulnerable client category which recognises services and people that have been delivering excellent services to vulnerable people.
Innovative and impactful work
This year there are 12 categories focusing on developments of any size, partnership projects, action to tackle climate change, skills, supporting recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, and much more.
Cllr Holly Whitbread, Cabinet Member for Housing Services said:
I am absolutely thrilled that we have been shortlisted in the categories we entered in these Essex-wide awards.
The work that our housing and community teams have done over the past year has been innovative and impactful and deserving of this level of recognition. It goes without saying that Deborah’s contribution to housing at EFDC over the past three years has transformed services for the real and tangible benefit of all our tenants and leaseholders.
