Axe the Act

Kill the Housing Bill campaign update…

The Housing and Planning Bill is now the Housing and Plannng Act.

The ‘Kill the Housing Bill’ campaign, an alliance of tenants of all tenures, trade unionists, politicians and housing activists, has now agreed to rename itself ‘Axe the Housing Act’. The focus of the campaign will be building a national network of local groups committed to raising awareness of the threat and uniting opposition to it.

There will be a second national demonstration on the:

18th of June assembling at 12 noon from Hyde Park corner London.

The Act limped through Parliament 12 May (read Act here ), but will not be in force till April 2017; much of its detail is not yet agreed.   Most people still don’t know about the end of building homes for rent, sell offs of council homes, pay to stay tenant tax, de-regulation of housing associations, failure to control private rents, and make it easier to demolish and clear estates.

Housing and Planning Bill Ping-Pong

Unfortunately MPs voted to reject 13 amendments to the Housing Bill demanded by the House of Lords. They backed higher rents for people with a household income of £31,000 or more (£40,000 in London) and plans to make councils sell “high value” homes to pay off the deficit…

We will continue to lobby MP’s and Lords. If we all lobby them we have a chance to kill the housing bill!
