The mayor of London proposed to expand the rights of tenants of social housing

Londoners living in social housing for the poor will be given more rights in deciding on the demolition of housing within the new proposals for the protection of houses proposed by Sadiq Khan.

The mayor of London, publishing the first municipal administration's guide to the renovation of the housing stock in Barnet, said that the distribution of bulletins for signing and plans for the planned renovation, as well as the discussion of the demolition of any building, would be a necessary condition for financing the renewal program.

Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn, who, along with Sadiq Khan, spoke at Barnet, said: "Renovation of the housing stock should primarily be in the interest of local residents, not real-estate speculators. Laborers seek to give residents the right to vote throughout the country, therefore, while we are in government, we will be able to provide a real update of living conditions for many people, not for a few elected."

"It is good to be back at Barnet with Jeremy Corbyn to tell Londoners living in social housing, that they also have large influence on the decisions affecting their homes, including voting on renovation programs."

Sadiq Khan also said that through the leadership of Better Homes for the Local People's Guide he will seek to involve tenants, residents and free owners in developing plans for renovating housing together with landlords, although the mayor has limited influence when it comes to the renovation of real estate.

"We need more social housing in London, so I will use all my powers to ensure that any real estate renovation plans do not affect existing social housing and will use every opportunity to build more. My guide sets out how I will use my authority in investment sphere in a way that they have never used before. I will demand the residents to support the new plans related to the demolition of housing by voting. I want people living in social housing for the poor and showing interest in their future, from the very beginning, were at the heart of any decisions made. By involving residents in the planning process and placing social housing in first place, we will be able to ensure that plans for renovating the housing stock help build a new best city for all Londoners. "- Sadiq Khan, mayor of London

Voting bulletins will be used in programs funded by the mayor's office, and they provide for the construction of at least 150 houses. Sadiq Khan also denies the assumption that the lack of support from residents and, consequently, the lack of financial commitment from the mayor's office can lead to the builders simply finding funding elsewhere.

Paul Scully, a member of parliament from the Conservative Party, said: "Sadiq Khan, being under pressure from the left, showed that he was more interested in playing politics than fulfilling promises given to Londoners. He promised to build 80,000 new houses a year, the government gave him money to build 90,000 affordable houses, but he hardly started building any houses at all. His guidelines and programs would mean less affordable housing for Londoners.

Recall, earlier Sadiq Khan was going to create a database of scammers-homeowners. This is a special base, which will contain all the homeowners who deceived the tenants.
