Labour will tackle crisis
London is in the grip of a housing crisis. Under the Coalition, house building has fallen to its lowest levels since the 1920s.
Lewisham Labour are determined to tackle the housing crisis and we put housing right at the heart of our manifesto for the local elections. And we are keeping our promises.
We promised to deliver 2,000 affordable homes including at least 500 council homes by 2018. Work is already underway and there are plans for new council homes in New Cross soon.
We promised to tackle bad practice in private rented sector and we’re cracking down on exploitative landlords and rip-off lettings agents.
We promised to improve the quality of our social housing. We will finish the Decent Homes programme by 2018 and work has started on the Crossfields Estate.
Your Councillors – Brenda Dacres, Joe Dromey and Paul Maslin – are working hard to tackle the housing crisis and to deliver on their promises to local people.
