Council Housing Review

South Tyneside Council's Cabinet has taken a 'minded to' decision to bring council housing services back in-house, pending consultation with tenants.

The consultation starts on Tuesday 30 January and a final cabinet decision is expected after the consultation process ends on Thursday 7 March 2024.

Why we were set up

As an ALMO, we can focus on delivering and improving Council housing services for tenants and leaseholders.

We are also able to access money that would not have been available to the council had they retained management of council homes.


How South Tyneside Homes is run

South Tyneside Homes is managed by a board made up of 12 volunteer members:

  • four tenants / leaseholders
  • four councillors
  • four independent

Each member brings with them professional skills to help run the service.

The board meets regularly to make decisions about the way we deliver services and how they can be improved.
