Labour’s War On The Suburbs
Support my campaign
Many people move to outer London boroughs such as Sutton and Croydon to enjoy our safe suburban family housing, but in Croydon Labour are transforming our area’s character by bulldozing home after home for isolated blocks of flats.
Now the Labour Mayor aims to widen their onslaught to the whole of London, even where Labour aren’t in control, such as Sutton.
His planned “small sites” policy will encourage developers to demolish family houses to build small flats, and strip boroughs of their powers to prevent it. Our local character would be lost for ever.
Back gardens provide important wildlife habitats, reduce flood risk, reduce the urban heat island effect in summer, and provide a calm oasis in the city. They need protection not concreting over.
Replacing family homes with 1 and 2 bedroom flats creates over-crowding, as family-sized homes become even scarcer.
we must stop labour’s smash-and-grab short termism. support my campaign to save our family housing.
The good news is that there is a better way. Below you can read more detail on the problem and what we would do instead.
