Macclesfield-based Peaks & Plains Housing Trust has been shortlisted for four categories in the upcoming 2013 Housing Heroes Awards. The Trust is the only organisation from almost 300 entries to have been shortlisted for four of the awards.

Peaks & Plains has been shortlisted for Maintenance Team of the year and IT Team of the year. Matt Cotton who works in the IT team at the Trust is in the top six for Career Development Star of the Year, and dedicated tenant Louise Booth has been shortlisted for the Tenant/Resident Lifetime Achievement Award.

The awards are in their fifth year and will once again showcase the people and teams that are doing exceptional work in the social/affordable housing sector. The event is organised by Inside Housing magazine and the Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) and attracted an amazing response with submissions from the length and breadth of the UK.

For the first time, the winners will be revealed the night before the doors open at the CIH Conference and Exhibition, at a ceremony in the Exchange Hall at Manchester Central on Monday 24 June. The awards are sponsored by the Regenda Group and Places for People. Last year almost 750 people attended making it one of the largest award ceremonies in the social housing calendar.
