Inclusion London has responded to the consultation on the government’s proposals for social housing. The submission is available for download and contains key facts and information for DPOs. The consultation closes on 17 January 2011.

We explain why we oppose the introduction of insecure, fixed-term tenancies, setting ‘affordable’ rents as 80 per cent of market rates and permitting local authorities to discharge their duty to homeless people by putting people in fixed term private sector lets, regardless of their wishes. Our submission sets out the housing needs of disabled people and calls on the government to increase the supply of affordable homes, including social housing. We say: address the supply problems, don’t penalise disabled people and others in need of housing.
