A blog to keep a beady-eye on my landlord New Charter Housing Trust, Tameside’s largest Social Housing Landlord! A Tenant VOICE for real Tenant Empowerment, Tenant Engagement, Tenant Involvement, Tenant Democracy; especially Governance, TREES and the Green Environment! Tenants need to be at the core of everything New Charter does! Tenants, anyone, even New Charter workers, can comment openly or anonymously without fear or banishment.

"Group Chief Executive Ian Munro has written to local MPs warning of the dangers contained in the Housing Bill, currently going through Parliament. He believes the Bill represents the “greatest threat ever” to the ability of housing associations to ensure neighbourhood schemes are driven by local need, not central direction."
I personally see no problem in reclassifying housing associations as Public Bodies? A level playing would exist once again between the newly created Social Housing landlords and the remaining Social Council Housing!
