The ambitions of West Lindsey District Council to increase and improve housing in the Gainsborough area has been boosted by the appointment of a key, new manager.
Di Krochmal takes the helm as the council’s housing strategy and supply chief, with a remit of delivering its vision for the district.
Di, who brings a wealth of experience to the post, said: “Our role is crucial if we are to realise our ambition to increase housing supply, meet housing need and transform our neighbourhoods. We will need to work with a range of partners, and I look forward to the challenge.”
The appointment comes a year after the council launched its Invest Gainsborough Programme to attract more developers to the area. Eve Fawcett-Morale, director of economic and commercial growth, said: “Di’s role is a crucial strand of delivering housing-led economic growth.”
The appointment was welcomed by the council’s home choices manager, Michelle Howard, who said: “It will have a positive impact on the wellbeing of our communities. Getting housing right impacts on all aspects of life, including jobs, health, education, transport and regeneration.”
