Nationalise UK housing
make nationalisation of the housing market in order to fix the housing crisis a Labour Party policy.
Why is this important?
WE NEED A NATIONAL HOUSING SERVICE TO DEAL WITH THE EXTRAORDINARY CRISIS IN AFFORDABLE HOUSING TODAY..
Chris Blythe OBE. the Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Building has recommended that "due to the ongoing failure of the private market that we need a national body for control of planning & development to provide low cost, high quality homes in the numbers now required." Affordable housing is a “precious national resource”
“If we are educating people and looking after their health, does it not make sense that we should close the loop with good housing that promotes health and enables people to take advantage of our investment in their education?” .
In his hard-hitting essay, entitled “Nationalise the housing market: A radical proposal for an extraordinary crisis”, Blythe traces the origins of the crisis over two decades.
His proposal comes as the number of households in England in emergency accommodation hit 77,240 this year, an increase of 60% since March 2011. Official statistics show that the median price paid for residential property increased by 259% between 1997 and 2016, while median individual annual earnings increased by just 68% in the same time period.
ALL THIS MUST END! PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION. WE MUST DO SOMETHING TO SOLVE OUR HOUSING CRISIS NOW!
