Local authorities preparing for compulsory competitive tendering of housing management will be able to follow the experience of pilot authorities housing minister Sir George Young has said.
Mr Young said: 'The main lessons of the pilot programme are the need for authorities to develop a corporate approach to housing management, to have clear aims and objectives for the housing service and to see that these are adequately reflected in contract specifications.
'Tenants also have a vital role to play to ensure that the customer's perspective is fully accommodated', the minister added.
