Tomorrow’s Council Estates
I've been perusing this site for the past 3 years and I have often read comments that unsold new builds will be flogged off to RSAs, devaluing privately owned homes in the same development. Another HPC prediction comes to fruition! I've nothing against social housing but the allocation policy favours tenants who are more likely to be antisocial. RSAs should not have to show deference to council waiting lists and should be allowed to select tenants themselves after interviews etc. This would enable young working families to get social housing and HAs can select tenants who are more likely to integrate well with their neighbours.
