The government, in its Housing and Planning Bill 2105, is proposing to sell all high value council homes when they become empty to fund discounts for housing association tenants exercising the Right to Buy.
Because the JMB is in a high value property area this could mean that every time one of its properties becomes empty it would be sold on the open market.
Obviously this would have a huge impact on local people in need of accommodation and the nature of the JMB as a resident run community organisation. Remember buyers are quite likely to be investors rather than residents.
You can register your concern about the bill by signing our petition to the local MP Neil Coyle, which is held at the JMB office.
