Homeless Link welcomes appointment of new housing and planning minister
Rick Henderson, Chief Executive of Homeless Link, said:
“The appointment of Brandon Lewis as housing and planning minister is welcome and we looking forward to working with him. It is encouraging that both portfolios will once again be represented at minister of state level.
“Our members have long been calling for an increase in the housing stock and access to genuinely affordable homes. We hope that the combining of planning and housing into one role will lead to better policy that ensures those in the greatest need are supported into long-term accommodation.
“We encourage Mr Lewis to use his new position to prioritise ending homelessness for good and call for the commitment and ambition to do so.”
