Council requests housing meeting

PARISH councillors will demand a meeting with housing chiefs over a number of concerns.

Members of Widdrington Station and Stobswood Parish Council have called for an open meeting with Isos Housing following complaints about services.

The parish is concerned about the housing association’s tenant allocation policy, speed of repairs and changes to rent payments.

Coun Anderson Crowe said: “Everything they said they were going to do and how they were going to work it seems to have fallen by the wayside.”

The meeting will aim to give residents the chance to express their views and receive responses from the association.
