SHAC@OHG-Riverside was formed to campaign for a better deal for tenants and residents of this giant landlord. The primary improvements needed relate to repairs and maintenance, genuine tenant and resident engagement, fair rents and service charges, fire safety including addressing the cladding scandal, and the right to transfer.
Merger with Riverside
On the 1st December 2021, OHG became a subsidiary of Riverside Housing Group based in the North West. There was no ballot on the merger, so residents were not given a choice over whether it should take place.
MP Apsana Begum wrote on behalf of OHG tenants, residents and workers demanding that OHG commits to holding a binding ballot. The letters were sent to OHG Chief Executive Richard Hill and Housing Minister Michael Gove.
