March Against the Housing Bill!

Saturday 30th June

 

Assemble 12 noon, Imperial War Museum, Lambeth Road, SE1 6HZ (map)

 

March to Cameron's publicly funded home in Downing Street for 2pm.

 

 

The Housing and Planning Bill means the end of social housing!

 

The end of secure lifetime tenancies. Council tenancies will last 2 to 5 years with no right to pass it on to your children. Landlords will have access to tenant’s personal income information and if households start to earn over £40,000 (a couple on the living wage) they will be hit with a ‘Pay to Stay’ levy for the difference between their social rent and the market rent – in Waterloo that would be an average of £26,000.

 

Local authorities will be forced to sell ‘high value’ properties whenever they come vacant – what flat in London is not high value? Housing association tenants will get the right to buy, so reducing stock further.

 

Private renters and Travellers to have reduced housing rights.

 

Developers will have to build ‘starter homes’ for sale instead of ‘affordable’ homes for rent. Starter homes will be worth up to £450,000 and sold at a 20% discount – but only to people with enough money to get that kind of a mortgage!

 

  • Join the march.
  • Lobby your MP,
  • Spread the word.
  • Kill This Bill!
