LHG is is a socialist society affiliated to the Labour Party "we work within the movement, both nationally and locally, to develop and promote workable socialist housing policies through our members. If you believe another future is possible for our country and housing – become a member and join us in the fight"
We started with a national zoom seminar on "Socialist Housing Policies for a Recovering Britain". I gave a plug in the Q&A with our Labour Shadow Housing Minister, Thangam Debbonaire MP, for our Newham "Airspace" ambitions to build more homes on top of our our low rise Council owned blocks. Which will at the same time tackle climate change by the retrofitting of roofs and walls and also saving leaseholders bills from new roof maintenance.
Thangam said she would like to visit Newham to find out more which she will be more than welcome.
The workshops were fascinating and I wished I could have been at all of them.

Afterwards was the AGM of the London Branch of the Labour Housing Group were I was elected to its executive committee. There was also a great discussion on London housing issues with James Murray MP and others).
I will definitely be bringing up at the Executive the prospect of there being a Newham branch of the LHG since housing is such a crucial issue to us.
