Ask your local council to say Yes to Homes

There are now more than 40,500 supporters of the Yes to Homes campaign. It is because of this, that we have managed to convince ten councils to officially back the Yes to Homes campaign by voting through the Yes to Homes council motion.

They are:

  • Ashfield District Council
  • Cheshire East Council
  • Plymouth City Council
  • Norwich City Council
  • Coventry City Council
  • Babergh District Council
  • Mid Suffolk Council
  • Milton Keynes Council
  • Oxford City Council
  • Corby Borough Council

The solution to the housing crisis is to build more of the right homes in the right place at the right price. For us to enable this, local residents and councils who support new homes must have their voices heard. Yes to Homes has been backed by over 600 councillors from across the political parties

Councils have used our council motion to show their support for Yes to Homes, to demonstrate that their council is taking action on the housing crisis, to enable public debate about new homes and to inspire other councils to act.

Your councillors don’t hear from their residents as much as MPs hear from their constituents. Your email can tip the balance in your community for building more of the right homes, in the right place, at the right price.

When just a few local people say no to building the new homes we desperately need, your councillors are forced to listen, and the homes that we desperately need aren’t built. 

Did you know?

More than half of people now support building homes in their local area (56%).

That’s more than half of people in this country who would say Yes to Homes. This is huge news from DCLG’s British Social Attitudes Survey 2014 - showing a substantial shift in support for ‘more homes being built in your local area.’
