Homes HUB

13 December 2016 From 5:15PM to 7:30PM   |   This event has now finished.

On the 8 July 2015 the government announced that an annual 1% rent reduction would apply to social housing rents from 2016-17. The reductions apply over a four year period to 2019-20 inclusive.

The financial impacts from the 1% reduction alone were significant, representing a shortfall of rental income of £19 million over a five year period and £217 million over a 30 year period compared to assumed future rent increases at the time.

Despite the challenges created by the loss of income, Stockport Homes are confident that we can continue to deliver normal capital programmes and maintenance works through careful management and procurement.

Stockport Homes will continue to actively engage with customers to determine future capital investment works.

In September 2016, the customer roadshow focussed on customer priorities for capital investment programmes and on 13 December we will discuss the results and how these have shaped future capital investment plans.

Please contact the Customer and Community Engagement Team on 0161 474 2862 or customer.involvement@stockporthomes.org to book your place.

Benni

I am on ESA due to mental and physical, long term health issues. I am unable to ever work. They award points for people who work, volunteer, or are in training. I cannot do any of those, so people who ARE able bodied get more points that I do.
I do get medical points but I still have nowhere near enough total points to ever get rehoused; I have been bidding for two years and at least thirty people are in front of me every week. I am probably never going to get rehoused. It is not as if Im being overly fussy about properties; I cannot go for stairs for example.

I even had a wonderful doctors letter saying that my current home is no longer suitable and also making me more ill, and I only got a measly 10 points. It is unfair that people who CANNOT work or volunteer get less points than those who CAN. I am a clean, quiet and decent middle aged woman, non smoker, no pets or children. I had landlords sing my praises in the past yet this counts for nothing. I also have the most excellent references, yet I am stuck with terrible neighbours and two flights of stairs that I can no longer manage; with no chance of ever getting out. I cannot afford private either as the shortfall in rent is out of my reach.
