We need a Labour government so we can build the council homes we need, stop rogue landlords getting away with letting unhealthy homes at wallet-busting prices, and give communities much stronger powers to challenge inappropriate planning applications. Labour will:
️ 100,000 homes built for social rent each year
️ Give councils the power to bring derelict or ‘land-banked’ shops and high street buildings back into community use.
Define ‘affordable’ housing as being linked to local income
️ Protect our greenbelt and prioritise building on brownfield sites
✅ Close the loopholes that allow developers to get away without fulfilling their obligation to affordable homes and/or community assets
️ 4000 new accommodations for people with a history of rough sleeping
