AS a resident of Northwich, I want our newly elected councillors to make solving the housing shortage their top priority after Thursday, May 22.

Many of us are finding it really hard to save enough money to get on the housing ladder, or are struggling with increasing rents while our salaries are staying the same.

I hope that all council candidates will acknowledge this reality and commit to tackling this problem.

They need to think about how we can get the right homes, in the right place, at the right price for everybody in Northwich.

I believe we can solve our housing shortage and that’s why I’m saying ‘Yes to Homes’ in Northwich.

All we need now are the politicians who can make this a reality. Find out more about Yes to Homes at
