Housing

Social housing should be increased and available for all at least ones could call it home and assured he will not be asked to leave when the landlord feels like it.

 

Why the contribution is important

at least when ons live in the social housing there is a hope of one day he could buy it.

and most importantly the assurance an satisfaction.

    I would like to suggest that Camden gives serious consideration to improving its repairs service responses. Leaseholders are charged a competitive service charge. All residents should be treated as customers and not as a nuisance. I try to assist in keeping our building well-maintained in the interests of residents and Camden, as freeholders. My requests and reports are consistently ignored. A repairs manager effectively intervened on my behalf last year to deal with severe damp problems in the lobby but there should be a consistently helpful responsive system from the outset. One of my ignored reports is a minor one. If you disagree that a repair is economic or necessary, then reply to the originator and say so. The practice of ignoring people in the hope that they will eventually give up is very rude. It should stop. No commercial managing agents would behave in this way.

    Thanks. We have built the first council homes in decades in Camden. Along with genuinely affordable Camden Living Rent homes (for key workers and residents who wont qualify for council homes but cant afford to live here otherwise, like teachers, nurses, and firefighters).

    Unfortunately Camden's facing significant funding restrictions that limit how many we can build at one time - such as a borrowing cap from Goverment.

    We would like to hear thoughts about what residents think we should do to overcome this? Should we build smaller homes? Build higher? Increase the supply of Camden Living Rent homes? Build more private homes to pay for more council homes? These are just a few options - but we welcome as many suggestions as possible.

    Think about a 'key worker' scheme of eligibility - with a wide definition of key workers.
