Housing Stock Transfer

Housing Stock Transfer

In 2007 local authority housing tenants in Newport voted overwhelmingly to transfer their homes to Newport City Homes.

In a secret ballot, 63.3% of tenants voted and of these 83.8% were in favour while 16.2% were against the transfer proposal.

The council worked closely with tenants and leaseholders to develop proposals that will ensure council properties can be improved up to the Welsh Housing Quality Standard (opens new website) set by the Welsh Assembly Government.

While the council always worked hard to provide good homes and services for its tenants, a lack of resources meant it could not afford to bring homes up to the Welsh Housing Quality Standard. Tenants can now look forward to a future programme of repairs and improvements that will total £233million in the first five years.

For further information about the progress of the stock transfer visit the Newport City Homes website.
