Hackney Council: do NOT cut the housing waiting list

At the beginning of 2021, we joined London Renters Union, Labour Campaign for Council Housing and other housing campaigners in opposing Hackney Council’s proposals to remove an estimated 7,000 people from the Council’s housing register (‘the housing waiting list’) that then stood at over 13,000.

We understand that the current financial settlement and legislation make it difficult to build council and social housing. However, the proposed changes did nothing to address the problem and instead would make a terrible situation worse.

We also called out the biased consultation. Our two submissions to the consultation are given below.
