Milton Keynes is in the middle of a national housing crisis. For many people owning their own home is a distant dream, and rents are increasingly unaffordable.
The Government have said that between now and 2050 they’d like to see a million new houses built between Oxford, Milton Keynes and Cambridge, and Milton Keynes could grow to a population of at least 500,000.
Milton Keynes Labour Party believes that if Milton Keynes is to deliver extra new homes we must build more genuinely affordable homes, and an ambitious level of council houses for a new generation. We are therefore calling on the Government and our Members of Parliament to “Back us to Build,” and let us create vibrant new communities that are a true legacy to the founding principles of Milton Keynes.
The “Back us to Build” campaign is calling on the Conservative Government and our Conservative MPs to:
- Back us to Build 37,500 new council houses by 2050
- Remove all restrictions on MK Council building new council houses
- Ensure 50% of any extra housing is genuinely affordable
