NSHousing confusion means name-change
PUBLISHED: 20:00 12 December 2010
A HOUSING association will be re-named next year to stop people confusing it with North Somerset Council.
NSHousing, which has offices on Weston’s Bournville estate, is looking to change its name by next summer.
A spokesman for the organisation said: “We know that calling ourselves NSHousing means that there is confusion between us and North Somerset Council.
“Also we do much more than just provide affordable homes – we provide a range of support services to people in North Somerset and the current name doesn’t get that across.
“We made the decision after talking to staff and customers who expect value for money so we will be making sure that we make the change in the most cost-effective way with the least amount of waste.”
The spokesman said that the re-branding budget will be ‘small’ but no figure was divulged.
