CESP Project Team

To deliver the CESP programme, a small team has been created by Villages Housing. The Team consists of

Colin Lafferty - Project Manager

colin laffertyColin's role is to oversee and manage the CESP Project, to ensure our customers are obtaining the highest level of service and workmanship from our approved contractors, to manage the budgets and plans for the works to the satisfaction of our funders, and to co-ordinate the added value aspects of the programme. He also manages the small Project team of 3 staff members.

He has worked for Villages Housing since 2001, and has worked in housing since 1995. In one of his previous roles at Villages, he was the Project Manager at the Multi Storey Investment programme, managing a budget of £5.5 million to improve the quality and condition of accommodation in our high rise stock. The Project received a Knowsley Business award in 2011, as Best Urban Regeneration scheme in Knowsley.

In his spare time, Colin enjoys reading and travelling - although, we don't think he'll have much time for this now as he and his wife now have a lovely bundle of joy, born in October, named Eva.
