Winners of ARCH Awards 2011 announced at Tenants' Conference 23/05/2011 Labelled as Tenants

ARCH announced the winners of the ARCH Awards 2011 at its annual Tenants' Conference.

Presenting the awards, Cllr Milan Radulovic, chair of ARCH and leader of Broxtowe BC, thanked the judges and commented. 'The annual ARCH Awards showcase the achievements of retained council housing and the standard and volume of this year's entries was more impressive than ever.'

More than 120 council tenants from across England gathered for this year's conference in Milton Keynes on 19th May. The winners and short-listed entries were as follows:

Exeter City Council won the ARCH Award 2011 for Innovation and Sustainability. Exeter successfully bid for grant funding to build 21 new homes and worked closely with tenants to understand their preferences in relation to sustainable housing.

Birmingham City Council and North Tyneside Council were short-listed for this award.

Norwich City Council won the ARCH Award 2011 for Excellence in Participation. Since 2009 Norwich has had a robust housing improvement plan with a particular focus on tenant involvement across the service. Through a number of different approaches, the council has increased the number of tenants who are involved in influencing services and they now make a systematic contribution to service design and delivery.

North Tyneside Council and Warwick Council were short-listed for this award.

For the first year ARCH has introduced a new category Tenant of the Year. Cllr Radulovic said: 'This is for any tenant, not just tenant representatives, who have gone above and beyond to improve the lives of their neighbours and local community.'

Nikki Plummer, Lewes Council won the ARCH Award 2011 for Tenant of the Year. Nikki has been instrumental in campaigning for, setting up and helping to run a Credit Union/Debt Advice Surgery on the Demontfort estate.

Paul McGregor of North Tyneside Council and Michael Hewlett of the London Borough of Croydon were short-listed for this award.
