Leicester City Council's housing renewal service will be exporting its successful methods to Europe when its beacon co-ordinator Irfhan Mururajani sets out on trips to Albania and Croatia, where he will promote the authority's best practices.

The invitation from the Council of Europe follows Leicester's success in being designated a beacon council in 2004/05 for housing renewal.

Sylvia Ivanova, from the CoE, said:

'We were very impressed by Leicester's learning programme and the methods used to promote Leicester's housing renewal programme.

'Irfhan's visit will be invaluable in helping European countries to learn from their counterparts.'

During the visit, which is being funded by CoE, Mr Mururajani will deliver a variety of workshops and offer advice on how to successfully disseminate information and advice.

Mr Mururajani said: 'Throughout our year as a beacon council for housing renewal we have worked to demonstrate to other organisations how we have become a leader in this field.

'We have received a huge amount of interest in our work from our partners and plenty of positive feedback. The visits to Albania and Croatia in May and June will be a wonderful extension of this work.'
