Homes for all, not just the rich
Homelessness and the lack of affordable and social housing are huge issues affecting Bromley residents.
The number of people in Penge and Cator either sofa surfing or on the streets has dramatically increased and the use of foodbanks and homeless shelters has also risen. Families in supposed temporary accommodation have lived in inadequate properties for years.
The number of affordable homes built in Bromley is one of the lowest of all London boroughs. What little social housing Bromley is building is situated far outside of the borough.
Labour councillors have grave concerns that Tory housing plans will lead to ‘social cleansing’ and we will continue to call on Bromley Council to increase social and affordable housing provision within the borough.
