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:

Do you want BITMO to continue?

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

The next ballot will be held in September 2024.
