Housing gears up to take crisis call to Westminster

The housing industry will tomorrow urge politicians to deliver more homes in what’s being billed as “the biggest housing rally in a generation”. The London rally is expected to be attended by some 2,500 housing staff and members of the public, and is the centrepiece of  the Homes for Britain campaign.

The campaign group is led by the National Housing Federation, the Home Builders Federation, the Royal Institute of British Architects and other key sector bodies. Together they are calling on the next government to commit to “an end to the housing crisis within a generation”. The campaign has been running since last autumn’s party conference season, when it was associated with more than 80 events.

The Westminster rally will take place tomorrow afternoon with the crowd addressed by speakers from politics, housing, finance and the entertainment industry. Housing association staff, residents and members of the public are drawing attention to the cause through a Relay to the Rally run, walk and cycle from various locations across the country that will end in Westminster tomorrow.
