The cost of living crisis. Rising homelessness. The housing crisis is all over the news every day - and it's getting worse.
All the while, around 400 homes in Waltham Forest have stood empty for five years or more.
And the local Labour council are failing to use the powers that they have to bring them back into use.
If you think that's a disgrace - join the Liberal Democrats in calling on the council to bring those empty homes back into use to help tackle the housing crisis by signing this petition.
It’s time that more is done to tackle homelessness locally.
