WCC Giving Away Prime Residential Assets

The Dame often worries whether Westminster CC is run by morons.

What makes her ponder upon Cllr Roe's fitness for office? Well, for a start her stupid, short term and opportunistic plan to flog off assets: assets vital to ensure low waged, essential workers have access to low cost accommodation. Fortuitously, Paul Dilmondenburg, the WCC councillor who fingered the appalling Shirley Porter and her wing guy, the 'late and sainted' Simon Milton, is here to point out the arrant stupidity of flogging off essential assets.
The Dame has to admit that she has always had a stream of rich ex- husbands telling her, " never sell prime central residential property."
So why does it take a Labour councillor to point out the stupidity of this move? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Dilmondenberg has a professional understanding of the housebuilding industry.

None of the 175 social rented Council flats that Westminster City Council plans to sell over the next three years under the Right to Buy will be replaced by a new social rented flat, according to Labour Councillors who say that the Government promise to replace every social rented property sold with a new one is completely bogus and a total misrepresentation of the facts.

In addition to the loss of 175 social rented flats, every flat sold will get a £75,000 subsidy from taxpayers, representing a £13 million loss to the public purse.

Labour Councillors say that they have been told by Westminster Council housing officials that;

"Receipts from RTB sales can fund no more than 30% of the development costs of a new home.  The Government’s assumption is that new homes will be Affordable Rent properties - which can be charged at up to 80% of market rent."

Councillor Paul Dimoldenberg, Leader of the Labour Group, said;

"This latest Conservative stunt is a double whammy for those in housing need and for hard-pressed tax payers on low incomes who will see their chances of a home they can afford disappear out of site. The Conservatives claim that every home sold will be replaced by a new one. But the reality is completely different, with low rent social housing for those on low incomes replaced by flats at rents at 80% of market rents. Everyone knows that these sub-market rent rents are not affordable for those on low incomes. This misrepresentation by Conservative Ministers and Conservative Councillors is deliberate as they know that there is no justification for selling off social rented homes at at a £75,000 discount and replacing them with higher rented flats which those on low incomes cannot afford. In Central London this is a recipe for misery and despair."

  1. What I like about the Dame is the fact she in thrall to no one...Conservative, Labour, Lib Dems,Green etc etc.
    If you are corrupt/idiotic/ dishonest
    she will hound you. Well done Dame.
    Everybody knows that they regret every central London house/flat they have ever sold

  2. This story shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

    This government has no real interest in providing truly affordable housing. Their policies are at best a pretence - appearing to do something when you're actually doing nothing (see Boris) - and at worst a manifestation of a most bizarre and warped ideology - the suggestion that Council housing is "inherently evil".

    There are of course also the small problems of a housing bubble the government might wish to deflate slowly and of banks with dubious quality loan books ...

    Whatever the case there must be serious doubts as to whether this "new" right-to-buy scheme is even remotely viable in Westminster, K&C or H&F - a £75,000 discount on a 2-bed flat valued at £350,000 or more has not put it within the reach of Council tenants. I would most certainly advise any Council tenant considering the purchase of their Council home under this scheme to think very carefully about what they're doing.

    I happen to find the tone of the press release disheartening. It is understandable that many on the left are ideologically opposed to the right-to-buy but they would be wise to consider just who the majority of the people who buy and then often continue to live in these properties actually are.

  3. This is just pure Labour party propaganda this one Dame, what a shame that your claim to be apolitical is so badly shown up by this story.

  4. Not RBKC the Dame attacked a Labour cllr...and she despises the Lib Dems!
