Dales authority shortlisted for housing award

HOUSING bosses are celebrating after being shortlisted for a top award.

After scooping the Housing Heroes Development Team of the Year award two years ago, Derbyshire Dales District Council is back in the running to reclaim that title in a competition that showcases the people and teams doing exceptional work in the housing sector.

The district council is the only local authority among six finalists in the Development Team of the Year category in the fourth year of the Housing Heroes Awards.

The event is organised by Inside Housing magazine and the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and attracted an amazing response with submissions from the length and breadth of the UK.

The winners will be revealed on Friday, May 11.
