Housing is in crisis - it’s time for our side of the story

Have your say

As a resident of Ecclesall, I’m concerned about the lack of serious local debate on the homes we need in our community when there’s clearly a big problem.

Many of our children are finding it really hard to save enough money to get on the housing ladder, or are struggling with increasing rents while their salaries are staying the same.

I am part of the Yes to Homes campaign which is helping to create a lifeline for the people who are renting, trying to get on the housing ladder, and stuck at home with only dreams of moving out.

We all need to be prepared to join in the local debate with our local councillors to tackle this problem, and think about how we can get the right homes in the right places at prices that are affordable for everybody in Ecclesall.

But our community leaders can only deliver those homes if more local people speak up and tell them things must change. The community must join the Yes to Homes campaign, together we can make them listen.

Please sign the petition for more of the right homes, in the right place, at the right price at www.yestohomes.co.uk.
