After the news that Wrexham council house tenants had voted against stock transfer, the Mail went out to gauge the reaction among residents.
MYRA Hughes, chairwoman of the Penycae Residents' Association, has spoken of her delight after council house tenants voted against stock transfer.
Mrs Hughes said: 'I'm very relieved and immensely proud of tenants, not just in Penycae but all across Wrexham.
'Despite all the propaganda, Wrexham Council were trying to privatise the houses through the back door.
'The whole project has caused so much stress for the elderly and infirm people living in Penycae, because with Tai Wrecsam they would not have had the same rights, would not have had security of tenure and would be in constant fear of rent hikes.
'I'm so relieved tenants have voted 'no'.' Mrs Hughes's views were echoed by Moira Russell, a 74-year-old widow who lives in a council house property near Brynteg.
Mrs Russell voted 'no' to stock transfer and said: 'I am delighted with the result. There were too many anomalies with stock transfer. I don't think we got the full picture.
'Housing associations, for example, put an extra charge on emptying bins. I asked questions whether there would be extra charges but never got a straight answer.
'If the money can be released for Tai Wrecsam then why can't it be released for Wrexham Council?'
But Hayley Jones, a mother-of-three who lives in a three-bedroomed semi-detached council house in Rossett, said she was devastated by the result.
Mrs Jones pays just over £50 a week in rent but says her bathroom is so small there is no room to install a bath, and that the house is in desperate need of maintenance.
'I'm very unhappy with the result,' she said. 'If there had been a 'yes' vote then we could have had the money to alter the house.
'I believe there has been a lot of misleading information given to tenants and they will see the repercussions of their vote in time to come.'
Chris Thomas, from the Afon Tenants' and Residents' Association which represents Caia Park residents, added: 'I'm disappointed with the result but the tenants have spoken and it shows they have confidence in Wrexham Council.
'The feeling across Caia Park was mixed. There were some who wanted stock transfer and some who didn't.
'The most important thing now is to find a way forward by opening discussions between the council and tenants to decide how the extra money will be raised.'
