Housing has always been a problem in Bristol. Thousands of people are on the council’s waiting list for homes, tenants are evicted with limited notice and struggle to find alternative accommodation that is affordable, tenants report concerns about the maintenance and upkeep of rented properties  and young people and families are struggling more than ever to afford Bristol’s increasing property and rent prices. We’ve also seen increasing numbers of street homeless, particularly in our city centre.

I want to do what I can to help improve Housing in Bristol. Not just to support the council in the building of new homes but to support Bills in Parliament that protect tenants rights to a safe home.

Housing in Bristol North West has always been the top local issue people ask for my help with.  That’s why I’ve been working hard at improving housing from the very beginning of my time as your MP.
