Southwark Council - don't implement the Housing Act

This petition had 157 supporters

The Housing and Planning Act will not solve the housing crisis. It will make it worse. It will force people from their homes, families and communities, into insecure private renting. They plan to use it to destroy council housing.

Our campaign has already succeeded in defeating “pay to stay”.

Southwark Council, like many other Labour councils, opposes the Housing Act. But it is prepared to implement it. We call on Southwark Council to cease all activity aimed at implementing the other parts of the Act, introducing non-secure tenancies or selling off high value council homes. This is a political choice, and the Council can choose to stand in unity with tenants, leaseholders, trade unions and community groups in Southwark, many of whom have already called on the council to defy the Act.  It can join with other councils to make the Act unworkable.

Sign the petition. Together we can stop the Housing Act.
