Housing Commission in Friern Barnet tonight

The Barnet Labour Group Housing Commission is meeting tonight at Friern Barnet Community Library for a public evidence session on tackling rogue landlords, improving standards in the private rented sector and securing more affordable homes on new developments.

 Barnet’s Labour councillors have set-up the Housing Commission to look into how Barnet can increase the supply of affordable homes, and help improve standards in the private rented sector. I am chairing the Commission, which is made up of independent housing experts, local community representatives and Labour councillors.  The Commission will meet six times over the next 8 months, and will be taking evidence from housing professionals, other London boroughs and the local community.

Tonight’s meeting takes place  7.15-10pm at the Friern Barnet Community Library, Friern Barnet Road N11 3DS, and will hear evidence from Alison Inman and Kate Murray – founding steering group members of Social Housing Under Threat (SHOUT); Cllr Phil Glanville – Housing Cabinet Member, LB Hackney, Cllr James Murray – Housing Cabinet Member, LB Islington and Sarah Sackman – Public Law Barrister and Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Finchley & Golders Green.

 All members of the public are welcome to attend and listen to the evidence, and can also give their own evidence by booking a 3 minute slot in the 30 minute open mike session here.
