|At the poorly attended Tory Conference last year Theresa May promised “help is on its way for renters”. But that help simply hasn’t come.
Instead, renters have paid millions more since the Tories came to power — often trapped by the cost of moving, unable to convince landlords to do essential repairs, and unable to save to buy.
But just how much has rent increased in your area under the Tories?
|In power, Labour will introduce rent controls, introduce consumer rights for tenants and increase tenancy lengths. We believe that everyone should feel secure in their homes. We want housing that works for the many and not just the few.
This is South Cambs Labour Party
Welcome to South Cambridgeshire Constituency Labour Party.
In the last election Labour almost doubled its vote in South Cambridgeshire. Our candidate Dan Greef overtook the Lib Dems taking Labour into second place for the first time in the constituency. Since then the membership of the local party has doubled and our sights are set on the next district council elections, and any imminent general election!
South Cambridgeshire is dominated by the Tories, yet it is feeling the effects of Theresa May, and the last Goverment of David Cameron & George Osborne’s austerity politics. County council cuts – forced on them by central Government – are will leave the most vulnerable in our communities without support. Health chiefs in Cambridgeshire have warned that cuts to care packages will heap even more pressure onto our community health services and Addenbrooke’s Hospital.
We’re here to say we have all had enough.
And we need your help. Please get in touch, keep an eye on these pages and come along to our next meeting.
you’ll be pleased to know we’ve been busy – we also have some new social media channels.
