Call for Housing Reform

1_UK-Daily-Life-2022.jpg.webp

East Marsh ward Councillors, Nicola, Steve, and Loyd, have launched a petition calling for immediate action to change North East Lincolnshire Council's housing policy to better address the rising issue of rogue landlords and unsuitable houses of multiple occupation (HMOs).

 

Despite the Council’s promises to address these problems, the situation has continued to deteriorate in the East Marsh.

 

Lib Dem Cllr Nicola Aisthorpe said, “The Council is not doing enough to stop rogue landlords or protect local people from unsafe living conditions. Changing council policy allow for more enforcement with stricter alleywayss rules on landlords will help address issues with inadequate housing repairs, fly-tipping in alleyways and antisocial behaviour. Change is needed now!”

 

Fellow ward Councillor Steve Beasant said “Licensing of landlords was first discussed 10 years ago when I called on the then Labour council to start a new scheme. They failed, and now the Conservatives have failed too”. 

 

And Councillor Loyd Emmerson “During the recent election, I promised that our team would take action. With this petition, Lib Dems are now going to deliver on your behalf”.

 

The petition requires 400 signatures and will be presented to the next full council meeting in July by your Lib Dem Councillors. Add your name using the link below to call for change!

We, the undersigned, call upon North East Lincolnshire Council to take immediate action to improve housing standards and promote community well-being by launching the process of 'Selective Licensing' across the entirety of the East Marsh, with the aim to implement with immediate effect. Additionally, we urge the Council to establish an 'Article 4 Direction' on Wellington Street and any other areas deemed necessary.

Thanks for signing!
