Section 21 Evictions

5023Some residents have contacted us about the grossly unfair libdem coalition legislation that allows blameless evictions from private Lets.  It was part of the Localism act 2012/4 set up by the Tory and Libdem coalition to allow landlords to evict their tenants,  The Labour group in Sefton Council will put this motion forward at the next Full Council Meeting:-

This council believes strongly that a secure home is at the heart of all of our lives. It gives security, enables aspiration and gives children a stable home in which to grow up.
This council believes that residents living in the private rented sector should have the security to build their lives and futures, and to become an active part of their community, just as residents in other housing tenures should expect. We note that nationally, the largest single reason for homelessness is eviction from the private rented sector.
We therefore call on the Government to: abolish ‘section 21 of the Housing Act 1988 which allows eviction without the landlord having to establish fault on the part of a tenant. Removing this unfair clause would help to make renting more secure, improve standards, increase tenant confidence and ultimately contribute towards making renting a viable long- term alternative to home ownership or social rent for the millions who currently cannot access either.

Bids for Funding for Crosby Village

Sefton launches major bid for Future High Street funding

Sefton Council is bidding for a slice of the £675m Future High Street Fund with bids planned for both Southport and Crosby.The Future High Street Fund was announced in last November’s budget and aims to support and fund local areas’ plans to make their high streets and town centres fit for the future.IMG-0700

In this first round, Sefton will include bids for both Crosby village and Southport town centre and builds upon the Council’s ambitions for its town centres encapsulated within its agreed regeneration frameworks and 2030 Vision.

The Future High Street Fund aims to help Councils, their communities and the private sector work in partnership to develop and sustain town centres to enhance their vitality and viability.  The fund also includes the opportunity to bid for part of a £55m Heritage High Street Fund.

Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Labour Cabinet Member for Skills and Regeneration, said: “Building on Sefton’s ambitions for its town centres, we are aiming to submit two bids to the Future High Street Fund for both Southport town centre and Crosby Village to help sustain them for the future. The bids will also support Sefton’s and the City Region’s ambitions for future growth.

“For Southport this will build upon Sefton’s success in securing around £10m of Heritage Lottery and Coastal Communities Funding for King’s Gardens, Southport Pier and the recently announced Townscape Heritage Scheme.

“For Crosby this will build on the significant private sector funding by St Modwen into the village centre. If successful, Sefton Council will continue to work in an inclusive way with private sector and community sector partners.”

Formal stage 1 bids for both projects will be made in the coming months with further details issued in due course.
