Housing

The Green Party will be holding the first in a new series of public meetings in Newport. In the run up to the Isle of Wight Council elections scheduled for May 2021, Greens are seeking the input of local people to the policies the party will campaign on.

Starting this Saturday, Green town and parish councillors will host a discussion with local residents. The topic of this first meeting will be housing and homes, with housebuilding on the Island well below the Council's targets, monthly rents rising steeply and some areas with nowhere available to rent at all.

The meeting will offer the opportunity for Islanders to contribute their ideas, put their questions to local Green councillors, and hear about potential solutions to the housing shortage.

All Islanders are welcome to attend, and entry to the meeting will be free of charge.
