A scheme which enables council tenants to choose properties in other boroughs is being pioneered by Newham LBC.

The system will allow tenants to use the internet and a magazine to find out about properties available on a database. Waltham Forest LBC, Redbridge LBC and Barking & Dagenham LBC are expected to join the scheme in March.

The four authorities will work under the name East London Lettings Company. In partnership with housing associations they will provide 90,000 properties for rent.

The£750,000 scheme is being funded by the government.
