Consultation on criminalising squatting

According to emptyhomes there are 2186 empty homes in Redbridge, which by coincidence happens to be about 2.18% of all homes. We also have a hideously high waiting list for affordable housing and a huge shortfall in building the things. Something’s clearly gone very wrong.

And then the Government comes along and sets about criminalising squatting. See this post on t’local blog – in particular note the link to SQUASH at the bottom.
