Cleaning services in Brent’s council estates are likely to be brought in-house following concerns around the current contract.

Brent Council’s cabinet will discuss the proposed changes at a meeting on Monday.

If approved, the council will assume responsibility for cleaning in the borough’s estates.

It comes after residents living in these areas were dissatisfied with the level of service provided by the current provider – Wettons Cleaning Services.

Wettons assumed the role in 2013 but resident surveys found issues relating to overall service, responsiveness to complaints and work with other contractors.

Cllr Eleanor Southwood, who is responsible for housing and welfare reform, said: “Council tenants and leaseholders have been telling us for some time that the current cleaning arrangements aren’t working, and this is a great opportunity to do something about that.

“I know how important it is for people to feel happy with where they live, and the cleanliness of our blocks is a huge part of this.

“If cabinet decides to bring the service back in house, it will give tenants and leaseholders much greater control over the service they pay for as we are committed to developing a resident led system which works well for all of us.”

If approved, the council will ask people living in the borough to offer up comments and advice about how the new service should be run.

Wettons has been contacted for comment.
