We’re currently running local campaigns on the following issues.
More Social Housing
During late 2017 and early 2018, New Forest District Council has started its five-yearly consultation on its Housing Strategy and Housing Plan. We made a submission to the consultation for the Housing Strategy in late 2017. In the first half of 2018 the Housing Plan will be consulted on, and we expect to be active in this consultation too.
We believe that property for private rent is now permanently beyond the reach of many people of modest means in the Forest, and the only way to address this is a significant increase of supply of social housing. It is really important to us that the next generation of Forest residents grow up in decent affordable homes.
