                                            Dear Mr O'Gorman

                                            Thank you for your recent enquiry in which you asked:

                                            " could you tell me and our action group when permission was given to
                                            start bamboo housing and when they were given the right to use council
                                            houses or as you call them social houses when there is a waiting list of
                                            over 14000 for 3bed houses --the covent was that magenta should ask the
                                            residents by ballot for all major changes have not received any about
                                            this ---if they have broken law step in right away please as you know it
                                            is labour party policy to build council houses.”

                                            For clarity, in terms of the housing register, I can advise you that as of
                                            31st March 2018 there were a total of 8,939 households registered with
                                            Property Pool Plus (Wirral Choice Based Lettings database). Of those 8,939
                                            households 2,163 (24%) have been assessed as in housing need. 242 of
                                            those households registered with an assessed housing need are in need of a
                                            three bedroom home.

                                            In terms of the covenants in place at the time of stock transfer to Wirral
                                            Partnership Homes (trading as Magenta Living), I have attached for your
                                            information / consideration, a document which provides the comprehensive
                                            detail of all covenants placed on the properties included at the time of
                                            stock transfer, so that you can understand what these where. There are no
                                            covenants that restrict the letting of properties for private rent in this
                                            agreement which was agreed over 13 years ago.

                                            Again for clarity, Bamboo Lettings is an organisation set up by Wirral
                                            based Magenta Living and Torus, not Wirral Council. Bamboo Lettings is
                                            taking a range of homes owned by both Magenta and Torus and marketing
                                            these for private rent.

                                            I have also included for your information the web link to Bamboo Lettings:
                                            [1]http://www.bamboolettings.com/. This web link has the contact details
                                            for Bamboo Lettings where you can raise any specific queries or questions
                                            you may have directly with them.

                                            We trust this information is of interest to you.
