Dear Dalton, Chelsea,
when council transferred council houses to Wirral partnership homes --a debt was written off to the sum of 120million --put if they built council houses would be told it would have to be repaid --but the torys have changed laws about council houses does it mean Wirral council can now build houses

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr ogorman,

 

Thank you for your recent request for information.

 

 

The Housing stock transfer agreement of 2005 did involve central
Government writing off circa £100 million of housing Revenue Account Debt.

 

Should the Council wish to own 200+dwellings it would be required to ask
the Secretary of State for permission to re-open its Housing Revenue
Account. At this point it would confirm that there was no requirement to
reimburse any previously debts written off  by central government.

 

We do not hold information as to whether we would or would not receive
permission from the Secretary of State. A number of council's have been
reported in the press as having been given such permission.

 

You have the right under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000
to ask for an internal review of the refusal of the information
requested.  Please direct any request for an internal review to
[Wirral Borough Council request email] and your request will be allocated for
review.

 

You do also have the right to complain to the information Commissioner, if
you are dissatisfied with the outcome of any internal review,
