Emma Dent Coad in the Evening Standard

Our new Labour MP, Emma Dent Coad, shares our position that new housing developments are not necessarily better.

Residents on the Lancaster West Estate, where Grenfell Tower now stands like a skeleton, have been watching what happened at Wornington Green with dread, while the council continues to act as PR for estate agents and developers.

People are angry. I don’t blame them. We need a complete reappraisal of council housing stock and a halt to the council’s development plans.

We need to grieve, to reflect, and put people first, today and always.
