There are over 100,000 families are living in Temporary Accommodation whilst over half a million homes lie empty as second homes, Airbnb-type short lets, or simply have no permanent residents.
Meanwhile, the wrong type of housing is being built nationwide. Unaffordable to anyone on an average income to either rent or buy, these new builds are also being sold to global investors via off-plan schemes, ending up as so-called “Buy to Leave” wealth investments with no permanent residents.
Communities are being broken up as council estates that could be refurbished are being left to decline with many homes empty, to be replaced by yet more unaffordable new build, often financialised by private developers.
The Climate emergency demands refurbishment, not demolition. Retrofitting 270,000 long term empty homes and council estates can help solve the climate crisis.
Please read the full manifesto above and sign below to support. Please let us know whether you are signing as a candidate, an individual, or on behalf of an organisation
