B3: Stock Transfer
This CLES Bulletin looks at how stock transfer has been covered by the different areas of press including housing, regeneration and finance.
Housing, in general, has recently been given its due attention by the Government in the Spending Review. (See CLES Bulletin no.2 – The Comprehensive Spending Review) As one of England’s most problematic areas, poor housing affects councils all over the country. The issue of stock transfer inevitably arises as one option considered by councils in their attempts to improve quality of living for its residents. Recent publicity surrounding tenants voting against stock transfer has brought the issue to the attention of the press.
