Westminster city council's controversial 'designated sales' housing policy is hugely popular amongst tenants, The Independent declares in a newsfeature (p6).

Across the City of Westminster, residents of blocks of council flats were queuing to become 'designated' until the scheme was suspended following publication of the preliminary findings of the district auditor.

Many people interviewed in the article say how pleased they are that new neighbours would be mortgage payers, not homeless families.

Meanwhile, Labour's candidate in the ward featured, maintained that designated sales had begun to create problems, with building societies being reluctant to lend when flats are up for resale.
