Northampton Sheltered Housing Stock at risk?

Sheltered Housing Stock report January 2014

ANGERNorthampton Sheltered Housing Stock at risk?

 Since 1994 the general needs housing stock as decreased by 3,778 in the main as the result of Right to Buy.

The percentage rise in the Sheltered stock from 13% in 1994 to 17% in 2014 is a refection of the fact that this stock as been protected from Right to Buy. And not that Northampton Borough Council have added any.

Defend Council Housing’s current understanding is that Northampton Borough Council intents to re classify a number of the sheltered stock as general needs, which would put them at risk of Right to Buy

    I’m sure you are right about the classification of stock transferring to general needs. I’m a sheltered housing tenant and this is being talked about. I called the sheltered housing manager today and was told like the many other managers you have mentioned she no longer works there!!!! I wonder what has happened I only spoke with the sheltered housing manager at the end of June and there was no mention of her leaving!!!! The stock transferring to general needs was going to be one of my questions, along with where has the service gone but no one seemed to want to tell me who I needed to speak with!!! NBC really need to sort the management out!!!
