Housing award for West Lothian Council

West Lothian Council’s new council house building programme has been recognised at the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) Awards.

Receiving the Best Housing, Regeneration or New Build Initiative accolade, the council was noted for successfully demonstrating ‘innovative’ ideas which support ‘continuous improvement and adaptation in local services’.

Birmingham City Council, Bournemouth Borough Council, City of York Council, East Ayrshire Council, Oxford City Council, and Peterborough City Council were also nominated for the award.

West Lothian Council was also shortlisted in the Best Service Team: Building Cleaning and Facilities Management Service category and Best Service Team: Parks, Grounds & Horticultural Service.

John McGinty, council leader, said: “West Lothian Council is investing approximately £100 million to build 1,000 new council homes which will provide affordable housing for tenants. National figures highlight that West Lothian Council is building more council homes than the vast majority of other Scottish councils. Congratulations to all of the staff who were involved in the projects.”

The APSE Service Awards are designed to recognise frontline services which are delivered to local communities, by local councils.
