Labour organise housing policy meeting for tenants

Housing Policy Q & A Session - Wednesday 18 May between 7 – 9pm

Lambeth Labour would like to invite you to a Q&A session about the changes to housing policy and what the disastrous consequences will be for us and our tenants.

Hear from three keynote speakers on what the implications are at a national level, for Lambeth and what the future holds for social housing.

Alison Seabeck MP is the Shadow Housing Minister
Cllr Lib Peck is the Lambeth Cabinet Member for Housing
Roger Harding is the Head of Policy and Campaigns at the housing organisation Shelter

They will be discussing changes to Housing Benefit, the move from social to ‘affordable’ rents and the gentrification of inner London which boroughs like Wandsworth, Westminster and Hammersmith & Fulham have pushed for over the past two decades.

The panel will take questions from a local perspective and also advise on how we can best campaign to protect social housing in our Borough and for our tenants. Lambeth council tenants are particularly encouraged to attend.

This event is scheduled for Wednesday 18 May between 7 – 9pm at the Kennington Park Community Centre, 8 Harleyford Street, SE11 5SY with easy access on buses and Oval tube.

To attend please RSVP to Cllr Jack Hopkins: jhopkins@lambeth.gov.uk
