Our Homes Not for Sale

All people deserve to feel secure in their homes.

The Tory Government wants to end the security Council tenants currently enjoy and to sell off council homes.

The Tories’ new law will:

  • Ban new lifetime tenancies, ending the security that Islington Council tenants are currently offered.
  • Force the Council to sell hundreds of homes each year, making it even harder for local people to find an affordable home in Islington.

We, the undersigned, call for the Tory Government to stop the planned ban on lifetime tenancies and the forced sale of council homes.

We just don’t have the space in Islington to replace social housing if it sold.

Council housing stock has already been drastically reduced by Tory Right to buy schemes without real and significant commitment to funding for new build affordable housing while the homelessness crisis and waiting lists increase. This is the first winter when we are seeing rising numbers of vulnerable homeless people sleeping rough in Finsbury Park under the railway bridge. It is utterly shameful and the housing crisis requires political will to effect change.
