September 7, 2009

The LGiU in cooperation with Westminster City Council today launched a report entitled Room to Move. This report argues that local authorities should be empowered to offer flexible tenancies to new social housing residents. The report gained wide media coverage including a comment piece in The Guardian, a piece on BBC Online and one on ConservativeHome.
