The Green Party believes a house should be a home to live in, not an asset for investors says Tom Chance, the Green Party’s Spokesperson for Housing.
Green councillors and London Assembly Members have worked with residents fighting the demolition of their homes to make way for luxury flats, and have exposed the role that policies like buy-to-let and help to buy have in stoking our housing crisis.
As London’s housing crisis continues to mount, a huge coalition of groups have united in calling for a complete rethink in the Mayor’s housing strategy which they say is driving up rental prices, increasing homelessness, and forcing people out of the city they call their home.
The Green Party is calling for a new approach to managing London’s housing. We would introduce rent controls, increase the supply of affordable homes and end speculation on housing, ensuring that everyone has access to secure, comfortable and affordable accommodation.
