Sheffield estates vote for transfer

More estates in Sheffield have voted in favour of stock transfer. More than 70% of tenants on the Hyde Park Walk & Terrace and Richmond Park, Birklands & Athelstan estates said yes to transferring their 596 homes to Sacntuary and Manchester Methodist housing associations.

These were the last in a series of votes set up by the city council after consultation with local tenant representatives revealed they would rather go for transfer than stay with the Sheffield Homes arm’s length management organisation.
