Hackney's sheltered housing tenants and the council have selected Hanover Housing Association as a potential new landlord for the sheltered housing and community alarm service.
The decision comes after six registered social landlords expressed an interest. Sheltered housing tenants were part of the 'evaluation group' that took the decision to choose Hanover. Residents heard presentations, and visited some of Hanover's sheltered housing schemes before making their choice.
Over the coming months Hackney Council will be working with residents and Hanover Housing Association on proposals to repair and modernise 32 sheltered blocks through a£30m package.
All residents will receive a detailed proposal and the opportunity to express their views before the council moves to a formal ballot of all sheltered housing tenants. Residents also get copies of regular newsletters and can attend meetings with council staff who are available to answer their questions.
Tenants have appointed an independent advisor to provide them with appropriate expertise. Residents will be consulted via the sheltered housing tenants forum as well.
Councillors Chris O'Leary and John Hudson chair and vice chair of the housing and environment committee said: 'The council is committed to improving its sheltered accommodation. Over the coming months we continue to consult residents and they will have the opportunity to have their say at every stage before they are asked to decide.'
