Between 1997 and 2010, councils across the North West built just 260 new homes. Since 2010, this has improved slightly to 1,070 but still none have been built in Wirral.
It’s time Wirral Council put that right.
It’s time we built new, modern council homes on Brownfield sites, managed by the council and, along with partners, providing the support services that some of the new tenants may need.
This would also send a message to some of the local housing associations that leaving 120 people homeless and almost 9,000 families on the waiting list is not acceptable.
