Tenants have taken control of Tameside MBC's first self-rule estate, reports the Manchester Evening News (p19).

The tenants on the 1960s West Pennine estate in Stalybridge have formed a co-operative and renamed the estate Lakelands. The co-operative will be in charge of repairs and letting homes to new tenants.

They will have an annual budget of around£100,000 from 1 April. Tenants voted overwhelmingly for self-rule in a ballot, reports the Evening News, after feeling the estate had been neglected by the council.

Tameside housing chairman, John Shenton, said: 'We are committed to working in partnership with tenants' organisations to provide a housing service which meets their needs.'
