Defend Council Housing 2009 Dates

Dear Defend Council Housing supporter ,

Lambeth councillors are pressing ahead with plans for a £12 per week rent rise on top of 130 job cuts to housing services due to the crisis in the Housing Revenue Account.

Lambeth tenants, leaseholders and trade unions are holding a protest at the full council meeting on FEBRUARY 9th at 7pm at Lambeth Town Hall against this latest attack on council tenants. Use the attached petition and return it to 56 Foxley Square SW97RY , or email me and I will arrange to collect from you.

Lambeth Defend Council Housing meeting February 14th at the Brixton Recreation Centre, Station Road, Social Rooms Level 5 from 1.30 pm -3.30 pm with speakers from DCH , Tenants Council and trade unions on the housing crisis plus election of DCH committee. All welcome.

If you would like to stand for election as secretary , chair or treasurer to the DCH committee please email me asap - you are also welcome to stand for the committee as a 'general member'. The committee meets about every three months , or as and when necessary.

The House of Commons Council Housing Group is holding an enquiry at the House of Commons on 25th Feb 12-8pm
and is asking all tenants, leaseholders and councillors to give evidence about the current state of council housing. Lambeth DCH are organising a delegation - watch this space for more details.

Happy holiday to you all !

in solidarity
