Cambridge Citizens Demand Affordable and Social Housing for Rent

This petition had 132 supporters

Housing in Cambridge is in crisis. Yet the government is determined to make it worse with the 'Right-to-buy 2', meaning Cambridge City Council being forced to sell up to 25% of its council housing. We need action now!

We call on the UK Treasury, the Department for Local Government and Communities and the Prime Minister to:

Stop the passage of the Housing Bill and the damage it will do to the City Councils Housing Stock potentially forcing them to sell 25% of all such housing as it becomes vacant, with monies compensating 'Housing Associations' sold properties.

Allow Cambridge City Council to borrow against their Council Housing Stock of an estimated £1.4 Billion to build new council housing needed to accommodate those on middle and low incomes.
