Housing: response to Grant Shapps' disorder proposals

By on 17/08/2011 in News

Responding to Grant Shapps' proposals on the above in the wake of the recent disorder, Cllr John Lines, said:

“I am pleased the government has acted so swiftly to seek the views of tenants and local politicians on new mandatory power of possession for anti-social behaviour. 

“I’m glad the Minister has also agreed to hear views from private landlords.  This could represent a huge step change in protecting law-abiding tenants from individuals who attach no value to their rented home and do not respect their neighbours. 

“Birmingham will be seeking responses from its 65,000 tenants and partners over the next few months.  In the short period since the disorder, Birmingham is concentrating on recovery and restoring confidence in civic society.  Taking pride in your home and local community is at the heart of this.  It’s important that we now work together to make this a reality in all our communities.”
