I Support Rent Controls

The Green Party supports rent controls, having passed an emergency motion in support of the policy in 2013. Green Party London Assembly member Darren Johnson has long called for their introduction in London.

“We give our tenants some of the weakest protections in Europe, we should copy the smart rent controls and security enjoyed by tenants in countries like France and Germany where rent can’t rise faster than inflation guaranteeing fairness and predictability for tenants and landlords,” he argued two years ago.

“We cannot go on pricing low paid workers out of swathes of London, it’s hurting our economy and the aspirations of a priced out generation.”
