Whilst the world was recovering from the Millennium aftermath there was a celebration of a different kind which took place on February 7th 2000. The Ocean Housing Group that we all know todaycame into being, taking responsibility of more than 3000 homes from the former Restormel Borough Council.
Fast forward fifteen years and Ocean Housing Group is stronger than ever.
At Ocean’s 15th Birthday party held in February earlier this year, Group Chief Executive David Renwick announced a staggering investment plan of £105M. The injection of money is to be spent on further improving existing homes which means new roofs, kitchens and bathrooms along with 500 new, affordable homes for local families.
Chair of the Tenants Panel, Jan said
“We are all delighted with this announcement; what a present! Not only will it improve the lives of hundreds of local people; it will also create much needed jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities. It really shows how committed Ocean is when it comes to investing in local communities”.
