As the political party conference season comes to a close – there is now a greater recognition from political leaders that Britains housing crisis demands immediate action.
Come to our next organising meeting this Saturday 7th October, 11am at:
Unite offices, 128 Theobalds Rd, London WC1X 8TN.
And help us finalise plans for the Housing Summit we are planning on the 25th November.
Our fringe meeting at the Labour Party Conference drew 100+ delegates and visitors, many determined to build local housing campaigns.
At the conference a resolution was passed calling for more council house building, replacement of any council homes demolished, and a residents’ ballot before any major redevelopment plans. Jeremy Corbyn restated these aims and plans for rent controls, in his high-profile conference speech, and a review of housing building, planning, regulation and management.
We are launching an Autumn Statement for Homes 2017 to press for action to invest in council homes, regulate housing associations, cut private rents, and Axe The Housing Act.
