More affordable housing

The housing situation in Northampton is appalling. Private rentals are at an all time high, it’s incredibly difficult to get on the property ladder, and the wait for council housing is ridiculous. After being evicted from our privately rented home of 3 years because the landlord wanted to sell the house, myself and my partner are currently sleeping on a sofa in my mother’s one bedroom flat. I’m also pregnant. I’ve been told council housing may take up to 2 years and we cannot afford private rent.
Funding should be put into building affordable homes for the town rather than “rejuvenating” the market square by adding fountains or statues. It’s about time NBC took care of its own rather than making it look appealing to visitors.
