HC Deb 22 January 1992 vol 202 c201W
Mr. Turner

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress has been made to expand the number of housing co-operatives and other tenant-led initiatives.

Mr. Yeo

On local authority estates, 30 tenant management co-operatives and estate management boards have been established since last April, compared with 15 in the previous year, while a further 100 groups are exploring or developing a management option.

There are 265 ownership co-operatives registered with the Housing Corporation compared with 255 three years ago. In addition, there are now 60 tenant management co-operatives in the housing association stock.
