Your elected representatives are supposed to do what's best for the country, but they won't take action on the housing crisis unless their constituents tell them that it's a problem.
- MPs can raise our issues with ministers and their colleagues. Most MPs already recognise the need to build more houses, but it is also important to argue for keeping house prices stable and improving conditions for people stuck in rented housing.
- Councillors decide whether or not new houses get built so ask them how many houses the council is planning to build as part of its local strategy and tell them that you want to support new developments.
- If you live in London you can also write to your Assembly Members, who have a lot of influence over city housing policy.
Politicians will be more interested in receiving correspondence that tells a personal story about the housing crisis rather than something that's been copied and pasted, but our campaign will be most effective if supporters demand a consistent set of policies - please use our pages on the housing crisis and our solutions to help write your emails.
