Almost £4 billion will be invested in public housing in
Glasgow during the next 30 years if tenants vote in favour of the
controversial transfer of housing stock to Glasgow Housing
Association, according to its own business plan.
The cash will ensure that every publicly owned house in the city
will have central heating, double glazing, new windows and a raft
of other improvements. Campaigners opposed to the housing stock
transfer have argued that this investment could still take place
under the management of Glasgow Council.
The proposed transfer of 81,000 homes is the biggest of its kind
in the UK. Tenants will be called to vote on the proposed move in
autumn on a date yet to be set.
