Labour and Co-operative Parish and Borough Councillors are collecting information about the state of housing in Eastcott.
Following a successful Co-operative Party Housing Conference, the next step has been to focus on the private rental sector.
Sarah joined local councillors and Co-operative Party members to ask residents about how well their landlords were doing in maintaining homes. We got some good responses and had some useful conversations.
The aim is to work towards establishing a Private Renters’ Group inspired by Acorn in Bristol. You can read more about Acorn here: https://acorntheunion.org.uk
If you have any experiences of the private rental sector in Swindon you would like to share, please get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
