Matt Severn supports Homes for Britain
Matt has endorsed the Homes for Britain campaign that seeks to tackle our nation's housing crisis.
Matt wants to see more affordable to buy homes being built and more affordable rental properties being built.
"Too many families here in Morecambe and Lunesdale are unable to move to place that they can call their own and feel safe and happy in. Too many people are stuck on the housing lists or forced to pay private rents that they cant afford.
That's why I want to see more affordable rental properties being built by housing associations as well as more homes that are affordable to buy for first time owners."
