We are committed to tackling the rising cost-of-living which has seen working people £1600 a year worse off since David Cameron became Prime Minister. Housing is now enormous a cost to local people with the cost of rent and mortgages out stripping wage increases.
We are therefore holding a meeting on Friday 9th May at the Sir Philip Game Centre from 9:30am in order that local residents can feed back their housing experiences and concerns to us – whether you are renting or have a mortgage and we are especially interested in the views of anyone on housing benefit.
In addition to your local Labour councillors we will be joined by Shadow Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Rachel Reeves MP and Shadow Housing Minister Emma Reynolds MP.
If you would like to attend please register using the form below:

Labour will scrap rip-off letting fees and bring down the cost of renting.
Under David Cameron, the cost of renting is spiralling out of control. Renters are now paying on average £1,020 a year more than in 2010.
Labour will do things differently:
- Ban unfair letting fees, saving tenants £350 on average
- End sky-high rent rises by having a cap on annual increases
- Make three year tenancy agreements standard to give families more security
- Help those that want to buy by getting 200,000 new homes built a year by 2020
