New company to provide Council property services

Published on 30 June 2022

From Monday 4 July a new company, Alliance Norse, will be responsible for improving and maintaining the District Council's buildings and property.

The company, a partnership between Norse Commercial Services Ltd, Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and High Peak Borough Council will provide cleaning and caretaking, deliver major project works and general repairs and maintenance across the Council's public buildings, corporate estate, and tenanted property.

The Norse Group provides a wide range of facilities management, environmental services, care, and property services to the public and private sectors - and is the largest Local Authority Trading Company in the country.

Councillor Paul Roberts, Leader of the Council, said: "Providing efficient and effective services is a priority for the Council, and we are constantly reviewing how we deliver these services to ensure we're providing the highest quality at the best value for money price.

"The Norse Group is an established, experienced provider of property services and facilities management, and we're delighted that through this new partnership, we can look forward to improved, more efficient, effective services in the Moorlands."

Justin Galliford, Chief Executive of the Norse Group, said: "We're excited to be bringing our commercial flair and public sector ethos to the Staffordshire Moorlands and the High Peak.

"Our approach to service delivery with our public body partners is evolution, not revolution, to improve quality, efficiency and reliability, and we're looking forward to getting started!"
