Housing Benefit In York, Its A Lot

Recommended Posts

From http://www.yorkpress.co.uk/news/11423960.Soaring_bill_for_housing_benefit_in_York_revealed/?ref=mr

The authority's total spend on the benefit rose from £23.43 million in 2003/04 to £45.29 million in 2012/13

A significant part of the increase is accounted for by the amount paid to registered social landlords, which increased from £7.20 million to £13.17 million.

But by far the biggest increase was in the amount paid towards private tenants' rents, which soared by 135 per cent from £5.66 million in 2005/06 to £13.34 million in 2012/13.

Housing Benefit ...do you mean, Tax payer subsidy of private landlords ?

Don't forget how your taxes are diverted to our "not for profit" Housing Association's fat cat pay!

Just looked at York and they include

Anchor Trust
The largest provider of housing and care for older people in England.
Is that this Anchor?
More than 50 executives at housing associations – which provide council houses at taxpayers’ expense – earn more than the Prime Minister.
Based on figures from last year, the highest paid executive at a housing association was John Belcher, at £391,000. He was chief executive of Anchor, which provides affordable homes for the elderly. David Cowans, at Places for People, earned £297,000.
At least six executives, including Keith Exford at Affinity Sutton; Mark Rogers at Circle Anglia and David Bennett at Sanctuary; and David Montague at London & Quadrant, earned more than £200,000, it has emerged.
