A PUBLIC meeting with the shadow minister for Communities and Local Government will be held next Sunday on housing in Brent.

Barry Gardiner, MP for Brent North, will host the meeting to discuss costs, availability and standards in the private rented sector.

Speakers will include Chris Williamson MP, shadow minister for Communities and Local Government, Jacky Peacock, director of the Brent Private Tenants Rights Group, and Navin Shah, London Assembly Member for Brent and Harrow.

Mr Gardiner said: “I have organised this meeting because I want local residents to have their say on London’s housing crisis and the impact of housing benefit caps on vulnerable tenants here in Brent.

“Ever increasing rents are driving workers in lower paid jobs out of the capital. If we want a city with decent services where people from all walks of life live alongside each other then we must address this housing crisis now”.

The meeting will start at 3pm at Brent Town Hall in Committee Rooms 1 to 3.
