Housing sell offs

Issue No. 1676

ASHFIELD COUNCIL tenants were shocked last week when they heard that Nottinghamshire council may transfer housing stock to the private sector. The Labour council is to employ private consultants to carry out a study into the transfer of the 8,500 properties, at a huge cost.

Council union representatives were not told of the move until after management had called meetings of the workforce. Tenants have called a lobby of the council meeting on Thursday 16 December to oppose the study and stop the sell off.
