Wycombe tenants campaign for no sale vote

Issue No. 2243

Housing activists and tenants are campaigning for a “No” vote in a tenant ballot on the sell-off of 6,000 council homes in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

Campaigners leafleted a Wycombe Wanderers football match. Tenant Jean Ivermee said, “We had council housing when we were young, but I am worried about what will happen for young people if all the houses are sold off.”

John Dennis added, “Once it’s gone, it won’t come back.”
