Hackney plans to take back management of housing

The management of social housing in Hackney could be returned back to the council in April 2016 following the completion of its Decent Homes programme.

Hackney Homes was set up by the council in 2006 to access external investment to deliver the Decent Homes standard across the borough. The programme will be completed by March 2015, and the council and Hackney Homes have now submitted a proposal to return housing management back to the council.

Charlotte Graves, chief executive of Hackney Homes said: ‘The council and Hackney Homes Board feel that now is the right time to consult residents about the future management of housing in Hackney and we’re keen to hear the views of as many residents as possible.

‘Should cabinet agree, we will be working together to deliver that consultation over the summer, and we will be ensuring that tenants and leaseholders understand the options. The Council and Hackney Homes have a good relationship and a strong partnership and the consultation will be built on that.’

The cabinet will consider the proposals 21 July and if agreed, tenants and leaseholders will be consulted on the plans from August.
