Support for Local Housing Campaigns

10 July 2015

Thanks to Waltham Forest, Redbridge and Hackney Renters groups for coming down to share information at last months' discussion meeting. They have pointed us in the direction of useful guides from Renters Rights London, these will be useful on street stalls, and other campaigns and events.

Letting Agent Research: Generation Rent are interested in supporting any groups conducting letting agent research in their area.

Landlord Licensing in Redbridge: The current priority for Redbridge Renters is lobbying the Secretary of State to approve the council's landlord licensing proposals. We have supported this in principle and are staying in touch for more information.

Green members were also part of the eviction resistance workshop last week: organised by @EResistance and attended by a number of other groups including Unite Community, and also people fighting eviction at the moment. Sarah-Jane is connected with this network, and is also proposing we screen a useful and inspiring film - Si Se Puede - get in touch to do more around this
