London Councils response to rough sleeping strategy
London Councils supports the government’s ambition to end rough sleeping, while also highlighting the importance of increasing social housing.
Cllr Darren Rodwell, London Council’s Executive member for housing and planning, said:
“Reducing homelessness in London requires a massive increase in social housing provision, which is why the government must empower boroughs to build more council houses as a matter of priority. This would be a major boost to tackling homelessness in London.”
