The Brixton Blog has reported on the growing pressure on Lambeth not to evict those who fall into arrears as a result of the new 'Bedroom Tax'.
The Loughborough Estate Tenants and Residents Association is now urging the council to not make those tenants leave their homes who face eviction as a result of the changes.
There was unanimous support for a motion urging the council to protect the 170 people on the Loughborough Estate facing a 14% cut in their housing benefit because they have a spare room.
We asked Lambeth council several months ago to follow the example of other councils around the country and not evict those residents who fall into arrears as a result of the Bedroom Tax. Lambeth Council refused.
