Action for Housing calls on Government to release dates for creation of affordable homes and rental housing

The pressure group Action for Housing has called on the Government to release dates for the construction of affordable housing and rental homes.

In a press release, Action for Housing highlights that the Government announced last September that it would be building a thousand five hundred homes, under what the group terms its “so-called affordable housing scheme”. It says it welcomed this announcement, but added rental flats are also needed, especially for those on the one-bedroom list. The group goes on to cite a statement by Housing Minister, Samantha Sacramento, on GBC’s Viewpoint programme last December, that the Government “absolutely” must construct more housing for affordable rentals – but says it’s had no further news on the matter to date.
