At the most recent meeting of the ARCH Tenant Group on 7
September, members of the Tenant Group decided to schedule a
discussion at their next meeting on the potential impact of local
government reorganisation on the management of council housing.
With the Government planning to bring forward a White Paper on
"devolution and local recovery" and many county councils arguing
for the abolition of district councils and the creation of single
unitary councils based on existing county boundaries the ARCH
Tenant Group is concerned that the voices of tenants are heard and
listened to in this debate about the future shape of local
Already county councils such as Lincolnshire and Surrey are
beginning to make their cases for creation of single unitary
councils in their areas and tenants will want to understand what
this might mean for the future management of their homes.
If you have any views and comments on this matter, or experience
of local government reorganisation in your area, the ARCH Tenant
Group would be interested to hear your views. Please email your
comments to Gez Kinsella ARCH Tenant Group Facilitator - firstname.lastname@example.org.
