Talks are being held on the management structure of the company which runs West Norfolk’s social housing, it has emerged.

Firm proposals on the future make-up of the board of Freebridge Community Housing are likely to be published this summer, Thursday’s West Norfolk Council meeting was told.

But Labour councillor Jim Moriarty called for greater council representation on the board.

He said he had been disappointed both by the standard of some of the properties the company had let in his Priory ward and by being advised to make an official written request for reports.

In response, Adrian Lawrence, cabinet member for housing, said: “Freebridge Housing contacted us a few weeks ago and wanted to change the make-up of the board which we’re in talks on.”

He said a report was likely to be presented to the authority’s cabinet after May’s council elections, potentially as early as June.
