Our History

In the late 1980s, Belle Isle North Estate Management Board was formed as a partnership between residents and council to manage the lower part of the estate (nearer Hunslet). Belle Isle Tenant Management Organisation was formed in 2004 after a ballot of tenants. It now also covers the upper part of the estate (nearer Middleton) and although it still works closely with the Council, it has greater powers and independence.

Ballots

Every five years, tenants vote to decide (under Right to Manage legislation) if BITMO should continue for a further term. The 2019 results were:

Votes cast:

1,093 (48% of all tenants and leaseholders)

Do you want BITMO to continue?

Yes 1047 (96%)
No 43 (4%)

The next ballot will be held in September 2024.

What services and activities should there be in BITMOs GATE?

BITMOs GATE has offered Belle Isle residents help with finding jobs and training, financial advice, health and wellbeing and much more since 2013. Which of these services are relevant to you and people you know, what new services would you like to see brought in and could you play a part in future? You can help us to understand what you, your neighbourhood and Belle Isle needs by completing this survey. The results will be considered by the BITMO Board in November and will be used to help draw up the new GATE programme for 2022.
