The government has already earmarked £145m for homes in these two areas of Sheffield managed by an ALMO to be spent on improvements such as new bathrooms, kitchens, and windows for tenants.
Chris Weldon, member of Sheffield City Council, was pleased with the result and the turnout. He said: 'Tenants deserve decent homes and this result means we can start work on plans for spending the money to achieve this goal. I would like to personally thank the members of the commissions who worked hard to come up with their recommendations and also everyone who voted. I'm glad so many people took the opportunity to have their say on the future of their housing.'
The council will now be recruiting people to the local boards in Areas D and G that will form part of the ALMO. Anyone who is interested in becoming a board member can call 0800 169 7580 for more information about what is involved.
Neighbourhood Commissions in Areas E (Netherthorpe, Walkley, Hillsborough, South West), H (south east), and P (Parson Cross, Foxhill, Herries) are about to conclude their consultation period and will be making recommendations for the future of housing in those areas before Christmas. The remaining five Neighbourhood Commissions will begin to look at the best option for their areas early in the new year.
