I would like the council to build a new estate of council houses. Private rentals are now around £900 pm for a 2 bed house and £1,000 to £1,200 for a 3 bed house. Estate agents demand you earn 30 times the monthly rent in order to rent properties and aren’t happy about housing benefit top up. It’s impossible for young families on a low income to rent, where are they supposed to go? We desperately need a programme creating new council houses which can never be bought to ensure low income families have access to properties to rent
