Choose from the headings below to find out more about EHL's governance:

Eastbourne Homes Limited (EHL) is a company wholly owned by Eastbourne Borough Council.  EHL is led by a Board of Directors and a Managing Director, supported by a Strategic Leadership Team.

The Board of Eastbourne Homes Limited must provide leadership to ensure that high standards of service are delivered.  The Board must lead by example in the way it manages itself as a group and as individuals and how it discharges its responsibilities. This cultural ethos goes hand in hand with the legal responsibilities.

The Board has clearly set out constitutional and legal duties under the Articles of Association (Companies Act 2006). It is therefore essential that the Board exercises their duties well and effectively to ensure the objectives of the organisation are met.

Eastbourne Borough Council will want Eastbourne Homes Limited to be able to demonstrate that it has in place effective systems to provide the high standards of governance to discharge the financial responsibilities and management freedoms the Council has delegated. It must be able to demonstrate that it is a viable and properly managed organisation and that it is promoting standards of probity and enhancing the reputation of the local authority.

Finally the Board must be able to demonstrate that it is an effective organisation that knows how well it is performing and what its strengths and weaknesses are.
