New chair for ARCH 19/09/2012

Paul Ellis


ARCH has appointed Councillor Paul Ellis as our chair for the year ahead, after being elected unanimously at the ARCH AGM on 17 September.  Paul Ellis is Cabinet Member for Housing for the London Borough of Wandsworth, one of the founding members of ARCH. 


Words from Paul Ellis:



"I am pleased and privileged to take on the role of chair at such an important time for the housing sector; it is absolutely vital for all councils that own and manage housing to have a clear and cohesive voice in shaping the direction of change. The welfare reforms and the move to self-financing present huge challenges and opportunities for councils and ARCH is best placed to make a constructive and meaningful contribution to this debate whilst at the same time driving up the quality of services and delivering value for money to over 600,000 households nationwide."
