A group of Haringey residents are set to meet with councillors this week to request for action in relation to housing, refugees and the living wage.
Haringey residents and Citizens UK which is community organising charity has organised an election assembly to enable citizens to merge together and make an effort to help improve the lives of the less fortunate households in the borough.
The group which is coming together will make a press for action to the council to redefine ‘affordable housing’ to portray average incomes, rather than the market rate also to enforce a selective licensing plan to deal with rogue landlords.
Numerous councillor will attend to the meeting, inclusive of the deputy leader of the Labour group Joe Ejiofor and deputy leader of the Liberal Democrat group Liz Morris.
Reverend Stephen Poxon, from St Marks Methodist Church, said: “We have planned this assembly in order to highlight the issues that matter most to people living in the borough ahead of the local elections with extremely urgent asks on housing.”
