The new government social housing green paper – published today (14 August 2018) – aims to rebalance the relationship between residents and landlords, tackle stigma and ensure that social housing can be both a stable base that supports people when they need it and support social mobility.
The green paper sets out 5 core themes:
- Tackling stigma and celebrating thriving communities
- Expanding supply and supporting home ownership
- Effective resolution of complaints
- Empowering residents and strengthening the regulator
- Ensuring homes are safe and decent
Slough Conservatives recognise the important challenges in Slough - and we support the government in making providing quality and fair social housing a priority, as it is for us in our town. Private rentals account for 24% of all homes in the town - 50% higher than the South East average. We think it is particularly important important that we tackle the problems people face in renting properties from private landlords - and these proposals will help us to support people in doing that better. You can find a downloadable copy of the green paper at the bottom of this page.
There are many things outlined in the green paper that would benefit residents in Slough - so we are asking all residents to provide us with their views on the proposals so that we can represent your views to the government. You can do this by completing our short feedback form at the bottom of this page. You can also contact any of our team directly, and you can find their contact details here. We look forward to your feedback!
