Comment on: £2.5m affordable housing project completed
What does "affordable" mean in this circumstance? Shared Ownership?
Comment on: Government benefit proposal attacked by charity
Whilst it is understandable the Govt would still be seeking to generate further ideas to cut public expenditure a distinction must be drawn between those ideas that are necessary to meet the Govt's target (whether you agree with that target or not) and those ideas which appear ideological in roots, and nothing to do with the current objective. This clearly falls into the ideological category. As such therefore I would expect it to be opposed by the Lib Dem half of the coalition. I would urge those Lib Dem Supporters who read Inside Housing to start the process to bury this idea.
You cannot have a situation where you can guarantee that EVERY person under 25 would still be at home or and could not leave home until they have a job. I am not proud of it but I was forced to kick my step daughter out of my home she being a returning student (which today will not be uncommon) due to overcrowding in the family home. How will these proposals help this situation even if the homeless person in such a scenario goes into hostel accommodation?
Comment on: Second ALMO becomes housing association
I am concerned for the staff of the new LSVT. Will the transfer result in more readily achievable efficiency savings ( reductions in staff) as the former ALMO is no longer scrutinised by the Elected Memebers of that Local Authority?
Comment on: Rok owed £360m at time of collapse
Can I appeal to the Govt in light of the failures of both Connaught and ROK end large scale contracting to supposedly achieve "Economies of Scale"for the larger RSL's. Clearly this strategy of putting all your eggs in one basket does not work. Give individual RSL's the freedom to put together their own financial packages to achieve their own economies of scale in all aspects of work they do whether that be Repairs, Development, or whatever the contract they want to enter into.
Comment on: Miliband urges Lib Dems to block benefit plans
I would ask Lib Dem MP's to search their conscious on the aspects of the HB Reforms that are clearly "illiberal" and regrettably vote against the Coalition on aspects of the HB Reforms that fit into this category!!!
