This part looks at the deteriorating conditions on many council housing estates and what results from tenants demanding more say; on the damp-ridden Kellet Road estate in Birmingham, a tenant group describe their ten-year-old contest with the council to get renovations. Birmingham’s Conservative councillors of the housing committee take up the issues and describe their views on tenant consultation.
