Northampton Nene Valley by- election later this year and Toms Close

Housing campaigners are ready to put hat in the ring for the Nene Valley Ward on Northampton Borough Council (NBC).

Norman Adams said “We are determined to ensure that the lack of social housing in this ward is firmly on people’s minds when they vote, we to be quite candid will outline our concerns that the housing revenue account is being misused and not maximised at Toms Close, we don’t feel that NBC or for that matter Northampton Partnership Homes (NPH) are being open in their intentions, the tenants on the board of NPH should in our opinion take stock of how they operate in light of the recent events i.e. Kensington & Chelsea TMO

Effect of reinvigorating ‘Right to Buy’ on Northampton council housing stock …

Effect of reinvigorating ‘Right to Buy’ on Northampton council housing stock …

Sale of council property increased in each of the years following the uplift in discounts

In the proceeding five years 152 were sold, in the following five 457 were sold

It’s time to call time on ‘Right to Buy’

The policy, introduced by Margaret Thatcher in 1980, has been blamed for causing a shortage of social housing.
The previous Labour government substantially cut the discounts available under the Right to Buy scheme but never fully abolished it.
The Conservatives, however, reinvigorated the policy in their first term in coalition, causing a further wave of sell-offs.
Far from boosting home ownership, figures produced by the House of Commons Communities and Local Government Committee in February last year found that 40 per cent of flats sold off under the scheme were now in the hands of private landlords.

The hard facts seem to be in the data tables produced by the government which report starts on site and acquisitions as being 20 properties
