Hands Off Oswestry's Council Homes

Hands Off Oswestry's Council Homes

We, the undersigned, wish to make it clear that we do not support the reported potential plans to sell off Oswestry's stock of council houses to private housing associations.

Why is this important?

Plans to sell off Oswestry's council houses were voted against ten years ago. Our attitude to this has not changed. Oswestry needs more social housing, not less. We want investment in building new homes in the right places for our community whilst protecting our heritage.

Reasons for signing

  • I am a private landlord taking in benefit tenants as council houses no longer exist in Telford. Landlords here are now reluctant to house these people due to the councils wish to charge us a selective licence fee. We have our own petition to stop this if anyone feels the need to sign. - selective licencing telford. Best of luck.
