You can read the 'Building Sustainable Communities' document here.
These are my proposed amendments:
Page 17, Line 40.
"We are working with fourteen local authorities to develop
Local Housing Companies which offer new ways of realising our ambitions for a new
generation of social housing"
AND REPLACE WITH
"We will legislate for direct investment in decent, affordable, secure and accountable council housing, to provide housing needs for that large proportion of people who are unable to get onto the ownership ladder. We will enable local authorities to improve all council homes and start the necessary programme of building new council houses to meet housing need (allowing councils to ring-fence rents and capital for investment in housing stock). In this way we will ensure respect for tenants' choice, stimulate the economy, enable democratically elected local authorities to get on with their job and meet our 2005 election manifesto commitment to ensure that all social tenants benefit from a decent warm home with modern facilities by 2010."

"We will bring the railways back into public ownership."
Back with more soon!
