I have recently moved into a MQ Estate to find that the DHE are selling off the quarters. There has been no consultation locally and the chain of command's view has been ignored. We are told that mixed (mil/civ) estates have been very successful. I am aware that the Army resists them on security grounds and that the estate at Bushy had a very trying period of vandalism/theft when a block of flats was sold to a housing association. The DHE has replied to us saying that they do not consult with families (this would seem to go against their charter). I suspect much has to do with finding in year savings as the letter states that they are looking to sell off 2,000 homes. Is there anyone else out there with a similar problem and does anyone have examples of the success or otherwise of mixing mil/civ on one estate?
