Swindon Tenants Campaign Group was formed to campaign against Swindon Borough Council’s proposal to sell off our homes to a Housing Association. We are pleased to say that the tenants voted by 72.3% to 27.7% to reject the ‘transfer’ of our housing.
Following our success in this ballot STCG decided to continue campaigning for the interests of tenants. If you welcome this vote and would like to get involved in STCG please see the Contact tab for details of how to get in contact with us.
The defeat of the Council’s proposal was a big victory in the face of odds stacked against us. Tenants are over the moon at such a result which would be considered a landslide if it had been an election. It goes to show what can be achieved with a little organisation. Tenants have seen a glimpse of their power. But, instead of sitting back after this win, we think it gives us an impetus to get organised. As individuals we are powerless, together we can more effectively fight for our interests. Join us and get involved.
