The York Federation of Residents’ Associations folded yesterday.
The decision was taken at a meeting which heard that it had been impossible to find a full slate of officers.
The decision doesn’t affect the many individual residents and tenants associations which operate successfully in many parts of the City.
It will, however, mean that a new process is required to allocate some centralised grant funding streams.
The Federation, which depended entirely on the efforts of volunteers, had struggled to deal with increasing regulatory requirements during recent months.
Some of its members had been critical of the lack of involvement on major policy changes being pursued by the Councils Housing Department.
NB. The Council has still not appointed a new contractor to carry on its “tenants choice” modernisation programmes
