The government is effectively forcing Rochford District Council – and other councils like us – to transfer our council housing stock over to a housing association.
Some councillors are enthusiastic about it, others are more unwilling, but that’s the way things are going. However, it still has to be agreed by a ballot of the tenants.
In the meantime, last Thursday the council agreed unanimously that the housing association we should work with is the Hereward Housing Association.. They are based in Ely , but would set up a “daughter” housing association in Rochford.
