The Council’s Executive agreed on Tuesday the 15th of July that one option they would not be considering is selling the properties out of Council ownership. However, this still leave two possibilities on the table. One, to renew the contract with Stockport Homes for another period and, two, not to renew the contract and for the Council to go back to managing the properties directly.
The Council also agreed a process by which they will assess the best option. An important part of this is what tenants and leaseholders think.
An independent advisor has been appointed to ensure that the way the Council consults tenants and leaseholders is fair and impartial. A survey to find out what people think is available on-line at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/StockportITA or it can be completed over the telephone by calling 0300 124 0114. There will also be a series of consultation events for tenants and leaseholders to speak directly to the advisor.
Over the summer tenants and leaseholders can come along to meetings across Stockport to get independent advice and information
