Home Group to stream live meetings
One of England’s largest housing associations will open up its board meetings and launch e-petitions in a bid to strike a deal with the government over transparency.
Home Group, which manages 51,000 homes, will stream board meetings online and publish financial information in response to government recommendations that landlords be more open. It hopes this will head off plans to extend freedom of information legislation to housing associations.
Viridian Housing this week promised to publish details of all salaries over £50,000 and expenses over £500.
