Tenants have voted overwhelmingly in favour of returning management of their homes to Sheffield Council.

Some 88 per cent of those who participated in the ballot were in favour of the move, compared with 12 per cent against, on a 55 per cent turnout.

The change, which will see current arms-length management organisation Sheffield Homes wound up, will not take effect until 2014 and the council has promised extensive consultation with the city’s 42,000 council households about how homes are run in the future.
