Keith Taylor, Green Party MEP for South East England has launched a new report today on the UK housing crisis called “Everyone knows we have a housing crisis: let’s do something about it”.
The report is officially launched in Oxford this evening at the Grove Auditorium, Magdalen College from 6.30pm – 8.30pm alongside guest speakers Professor Danny Dorling and author Anna Minton. Oxford is officially the UK’s least affordable city to live in.
Keith Taylor will also be touring South East England over the next 3 weeks to speak about the report in Brighton, Canterbury, Winchester, Reading and Guildford.
See below for some stand out headlines from the report:
Keith Taylor Green MEP for South East England said:
“People have had enough of living in fear - not knowing how they are going to make next month’s rent. It is imperative that the debate now moves on to looking at the radical but necessary solutions to the housing crisis.
It is time to move away from treating houses purely as financial assets to be shuffled around for maximum gain and instead ensure that we provide decent and affordable homes that meet people’s needs.
This report demonstrates that housing has become unsustainably expensive, and that fresh political will and innovative mechanisms are needed to make housing work for people again.”
