Tenants launch alternative housing plan

Tenants First has outlined proposals for a public housing strategy to meet the housing crisis. It calls for the establishment of a £3 billion fund to be used for a ten-year regeneration programme that will include the setting up a board of representatives from government, tenants and those marginalised or excluded from housing. Tenants First said this type of approach guarantees that a proportion of the state resources being handed over to the banking sector will be directed back to social purposes.
