I can't afford to live in Brighton.

I'm one pay cheque away from becoming homeless. We can't afford higher rents.

I want a safe roof over my head. I spend half my income on rent.

There's a housing crisis in Brighton & Hove. The housing shortage, particularly in social housing, has meant street homelessness has doubled in the past year. People are being priced out of the city, the fabric of the Brighton & Hove is changing and we need more affordable homes if we are to stop this.

Worried about Brighton & Hove's housing shortage? Sign our petition.

Yet against this backdrop developers are consistently failing to meet the council's own target of providing 40% affordable housing in new housing developments (with affordable housing still costing up to 80% of market rent). And the council is complicit in this - accepting £1.2 million from developer Crest Nicholson to build luxury flats with no affordable housing at all. We have to ask the council: for the sake of our city, where's the 40%?
