We understand that it is your money we spend and we have a responsibility to you to use it carefully and efficiently.

What does value for money mean?
Getting value for money is part of our everyday lives. We make decisions about how to spend money all the time. When money is tight it is even more important to make your money go further. We use the three E’s as a simple guide to explain value for money:

Efficiency - value for money is about processes and how well we use the money.
Effectiveness - value for money is about satisfaction and asking ourselves did we get what was expected?

How can you help us to achieve better value for money?
Opt for a rent payment method which is less expensive for us to process. A direct debit payment is considerably cheaper than a cheque payment. If you wish to pay by direct debit please contact us for more details on 01323 875240. It also helps if you pay your rent on time as then we do not have to contact you and this saves money.
We're keen for residents to be involved and there are opportunities for you to share suggestions and feedback. Please let us know if you have any ideas which could save money. Phone us on 01323 875240 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
