More Social Housing
Ease the Waiting Lists
Labour will create more Social Housing for Castle Point to reduce waiting lists. Any new housing would be built on Brownfield land only and be supported by appropriate infrastructure.
Protect Our Green Belt
Labour Councillors will fight to protect our Green Belt, basing annual housing builds on a sustainable vision for our borough. We have the lowest amount of public rented housing in the country, reducing further through the Right to Buy Social Housing. Labour will fight for replacing houses lost, increasing rented properties and other Social Housing to help our young people on to the housing ladder and allowing those who have grown up here and was to stay, to do so.
