There will reveal that council houses are being forced to transfer the profits from tenantís rent to the Government, most of which are reorganized to other parts of the country for spending on other projects. Around $200 million is also being kept by the Treasury in a council house for exchange of houses. This scheme is leading to essential services such as the building, repair and maintenance of council housing being saving of cash. The leaders of council housing are calling for the cash to be retained locally and spent on improving the housing needs of local citizens. In other words if local authorities were given the same freedom and flexibility as housing associations, local citizens could easily understand this scheme. These council houses could be using this money to build thousands of new council homes to help solve the housing crisis and to improve the homes of accessible renters.
Tenants will be shocked to learn that their rent is being used to pay for projects in other parts of the country and in some cases kept in the Treasury of the Government. Council should have the freedom for tenants or customers to decide how this money is spent. Some areas of the country need extra resources for housing; this should be funded by council tenants who are some of the most helpless members of society. Some times this council works as non profit organization. The current system of general taxation is a barrier in the way of councils who are determined to provide the best possible housing for tenants now and in the future. Council house exchange is making an effort to create places where people feel proud to live in. These organizations also creates a housing finance system that will deliver good quality homes and services to house exchange tenants and allow tenants to develop and manage their homes appropriately.
Council house has launched a major new housing campaign in which find out the places where tenants wants to live and the aim to ensure, that houses are affordable, well designed, of high quality, neighborhood, support economic development and regeneration, and are in communities where people want to live and to enjoy the life.
