Introducing our new Grimsby home
Published By Pressat [English], Tue, Sep 27, 2022 8:34 AM
Lincolnshire-based housing provider Lincolnshire Housing Partnership (LHP) is delighted to announce its new North East Lincolnshire home.
From Spring 2023, the social landlord will move its Grimsby base to Cartergate House, on Chantry Lane in the town.
The housing association previously announced the end of its lease on Westgate House, and its desire to look for a new North East Lincolnshire home.
Changes will reflect the feedback the organisation received from customers and stakeholders in the preparation for its 2022-2027 Corporate Strategy, Building Better Communities Together. Customers particularly highlighted their desire to see LHP teams in their communities, rather than having to visit an office environment.
The ground floor office suite, extending to just under 5,000 square feet has been empty since the building was constructed by North East Lincolnshire Council and occupied in the main by Wilkin Chapman Solicitors.
“We have recently launched our 2022-2027 Corporate Plan, Great Homes…Strong Communities, which outlines our commitment to a more sustainable future, and working more closely with our customers in their neighbourhoods.
“As an organisation we are embracing modern ways of working and providing our colleagues with both flexibility and the most appropriate facilities for them to undertake their role.”
We have also seen our customers’ habits change, as well as moving away from the traditional habits of attending a local office, there has been a call for more ways to contact LHP through digital channels.
Murray continued: “We work best when we are engaging with customers and other agencies to deliver housing solutions.
“Such engagements can work better in the community and, sometimes, in people’s homes.
“Having a large office with rows of desks is not particularly efficient and so we have taken the view that a smaller office base and increased technology and flexibility will enable us to invest further into the business.”
LHP has been advised by Scott's Property LLP and their representative Lawrence Brown said:
“We worked with LHP to help shape and create their brief. The proposal is to fit out the premises in a modern staff focused way rather than straightforward corporate office.”
He continued: “We undertook a wide search across the area and settled on Cartergate House as it met a number of criteria including flexibility of accommodation, proximity to other services together with sustainable issues such as public transport links and energy efficiency.”
The premises are currently in a shell state and contractors will spend the next few months fitting out the premises with occupation anticipated to take place in spring next year.
