Housing greed VS Housing need

The Communist Party Housing Commission has produced this campaigning six-point charter for housing activists, tenants, housing and building workers.


A decent, affordable home is a basic human right; If your rent costs more than a third of your household income it is unaffordable.

Communists say:

Freeze rents, regulate private landlords, stop no-fault evictions

Start a mass council housing development and improvement programme, stop the sale of public land to private developers

Bring back Council homes transferred to housing associations and arms-length companies and put them under democratic control

Restore council construction, design and development jobs

Build a truly independent tenant’s movement linked to the trades’ unions and local communities all of which should be involved in developing local plans

End homelessness. Make the provision of suitable accommodation for all homeless people a legal requirement
