Housing in Brighton
We believe that everybody, regardless of income, should have access to a home that is affordable and secure.
The housing problem in Brighton and Hove is particularly acute. Brighton has some of the highest market prices for land, housing and rents in the country in relation to income. Homelessness, house prices and council waiting lists are all increasing. The private rented sector – the only option for many – is insecure, expensive and often of low quality. People earning the national average wage or lower are priced out of accommodation in the city and have to move away from their communities and places they live and work, while a generation of young people born in Brighton and Hove can’t afford to live in the city they were raised in.
