Tenant Committees to lose control of the Tenant Led Budget

Vote on Tenant Led Budget Schemes Given to Kirklees Councillors

In a shock announcement at the Huddersfield North Area Forum on Friday 01/02/13 a KNH Officer announced that it ‘had been decided’ that Kirklees Councillors would in future be able to vote on schemes for the Tenant Led Budget.

Update (06/02/13)

KNH have said that the £1 Million + Tenant Led Budget was at risk of being lost unless Kirklees Councillors were allowed to vote on the schemes put forward.

The four Tenant Committee’s were asked last year whether they would object to this proposal. The two North Kirklees Tenant Committees voted to allow Cllrs to have a vote and the two Huddersfield ones were totally opposed to the only budget controlled by Tenants being removed from their control.

KFTRA have not been consulted or even informed about this decision and will be discussing the implications of this at their next Delegates Meeting on Monday 11th February, 10.30am, Dewsbury Town Hall

Further information will be added when known.
