Terraced-housing.jpg

Conservative policies are making Northampton's Housing Crisis worse says Lib Dem Councillor Sally Beardsworth.
" The Government has told Northampton Borough Council that it must sell 100 of its' best homes" says Sally. " The money from these properties will not be imvested in affordable housing locally, but given to The Government to subsidise the right to buy for Housing Association tenants". " A double whammy for the 7,000 plus people on our waiting lists.

This really makes me mad. Just a few weeks after signing up to the Paris climate change agreement, with the Secretary of State saying the UK is 'absolutely committed' to it, the Government is now trying to pull the rug from under the feet of Britain's solar power industry. 

This is a chance for Britain to get ahead of the game in a growing sector, but sadly the Government is too short-sighted to realise that.
