Little London Community Centre 10.30am, Saturday 7th November
This is mainly for residents in the Hyde Park and Woodhouse ward, which includes Little London; the Councillors for the ward are Gerry Harper, Javaid Akhtar and Christine Towler. We will be pressing our concerns about how they will deal with tenants struggling to pay their rents, the enormous waiting lists for Leeds Council Houses and the plight of those struggling to survive in the private sector. We want to know how they will protect their tenants who are unable to pay their rent.
If you can’t attend the lobby, councillors can also be contacted via their email, and if you live in a ward other than Hyde Park and Woodhouse, you may want to contact your own councillors. All councillors’ email addresses and times of their local surgeries can be found via this page.
You can find more information about planned government attacks on housing on the Hands Off Our Homes website here and we have also posted the letter we sent to the YEP today on the website here. There’s a lot of public focus on housing at the moment, so this would be a great time to send in your own letters to the YEP – email firstname.lastname@example.org
You can contact us if you want to discuss any of this.
