Lib Dems are demanding fair funding for council housing. Cllr Prue Bray, Leader of the Lib Dem Group on Wokingham Borough Council says, “We believe very strongly that council tenants should be treated fairly. It is not right that nearly half the rent paid by council tenants in Wokingham Borough is siphoned off by the government. That money should be used to help provide decent accommodation for local people who cannot afford to buy a home of their own.”
The government is currently consulting on possible changes to the funding of council housing. The consultation closes on 27th October.
