Homes

We want everyone to be able to live in a safe, affordable home. We want people to be able to stay living near their families and communities.

We will:

  • Use Council powers to bring the 559 empty homes in the borough back into use.
  • Protect renters by making landlord-licensing compulsory, like in Newham
  • Link affordable rent to wages, not market rent, so that people are no longer prices out of the borough
  • Support leaseholders to set up residents' associations and challenge poor service and excessive charges from some management companies
