Decent Homes by 2010? The standards are so vague and full of loopholes that a great many tenants will not have a Decent Home even after their landlord has run the programme. There are thousands of tenants living in old 'hard-to-heat' blocks of flats with no insulation, and no cavity wall in which to put it. There is no funding for this work to be done, not from any source, and the tenants are not eligible for any grants as they are social housing tenants. They may get better kitchens, or even new central heating boilers, but their flats may still never be warm in winter even with the heating on full. Not that they can afford to run it all winter. There are also anomalies that arise where landlords have a bulk kitchens programme - the tenant can have a new kitchen, but not an inside toilet, for example, or the new kitchen can only be installed in what was the only (and small) living room. In some cases, flats that missed the bulk kitchens project later have a substandard new kitchen installed, not compliant with the new safety regulations. It seems to be a very haphazard programme that leaves many tenants with one 'decent' room and a whole load of problems.
