A new 29-page agreement for 20,000 council tenants in Oldham could become the model for other councils to follow under government plans to stamp out anti-social behaviour on housing estates, reports The Daily Mail (p25).

Any tenants who break the rules aimed at creating 'caring and happy communities' could face eviction and the council would not have to rehouse them.

The agreement tells tenants: 'We recognise your right to enjoy living life as you choose, as long as this does not make other tenants' lives miserable'. But Oldham MBC's housing chiarman, Dave Hibbert, warned: 'We are not frightened of resorting to law if that is what it takes.'
