Unbelievably there are thousands of empty homes in Lambeth, despite the housing waiting lists being full. Lambeth Green Party is discussing this tomorrow night at its monthly meeting. Details below. It is open to the public. Hope to see some of you there.

"The next Lambeth Green Party monthly meeting will focus on our Empty Homes Campaign. Three speakers will tell us what Lambeth Council is doing, what a charity thinks the council should be doing and what the Green Party would do. The speakers are Maxine Wilson from Lambeth Council's Empty Property Service, James Rowlands from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and Rebecca Findlay, our parliamentary candidate for Streatham.There will be a question and answer session, followed by a 'parallel thinking' session to formulate our campaign, based on what we've learned.Date: Wednesday, 6th May 2009Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pmPlace: Brixton St Vincent’s Community Centre, Talma Road, London SW2 1ASSee http://www.bsvcc.org/contact.html for details on how to get there.The meeting is open to all and it would be great to publicise it as widely as possible.
