HOUSING (or the lack of it) IN BARNET – A PUBLIC MEETING

  • There are many evictions in Barnet
    happening now.
  • There are more rough sleepers on
    our streets than we used to see.
  • People are driven to desperation by
    the threat of homelessness.

Are these because of the council’s
housing policies? Are they related to debts caused by
the Bedroom tax? Or the roll out of the Universal
Credit? Are landlords using Section 21 to evict their tenants?

What do we know about these evictions and the housing situation in Barnet? Do we feel comfortable about it? How much do we care? Do we want to get organised as a community to do something to support each other and those among us who find themselves in dire housing situation?
