Stop privatisation; improve existing and build a new generation of first class council housing
Action spreads for Council housingFalling incomes, benefit cuts and the Bedroom tax mean Secure tenancies and lower rents are more important than ever. With five million people on council waiting lists, we need to step up pressure for investment in a new generation of first class council housing. The Lyons Housing Review identifies the demand for new council homes, but not the investment needed. Tenants fighting the Bedroom Tax, and threats to demolish or sell-off their homes, are calling on trade unions, councillors and MPs to join us, and halt the attacks on our homes.
A London March for Homes on 31 Jan is demanding Hands off council housing, controlled rents and affordable, secure homes for all - see leaflet.
Ask your trade union, tenants association or campaign to support it model motion. Call on Councillors to condemn Government calling council homes 'brownfield estates'petition here.
