Lambeth Labour manifesto threatens to sack ALMO

"We will give Lambeth Living 12 months tp improve quality of repairs , reduce the time taken to re-let empty homes , keep rent rises down and improve the service to leaseholders or we will sack them and put the service under new management."

This comes from an administration which told us that ALMOs bring a more efficient service than in directly managed authorities!

It is not clear whether this means bringing the housing managment back in-house under direct council control or whether it means continuing with the partially privatised arrangement under a new leadership.

Get your fellow tenants and election candidates to sign up to the Manifesto for Council Housing launched at the recent Defend Council Housing conference - go to for more details.
