Support Jonathan Ryenold MP's Bill on Cooperative Housing

You are here: Home / Blog / Politics / Support Jonathan Ryenold MP's Bill on Cooperative Housing
In a few minutes I will be on my feet in the House of Commons calling for the end of the feudal nature of England's land ownership legislation and the enshrining of co-operative housing in law. I will be introducing the Co-operative Housing Tenure Bill under the Ten Minute Rule.

It is now harder than ever for young people to find a home of their own and if we are to address this issue it is time to look beyond the traditional options of ownership or tenancy.

This Bill would open the way for the development of true 'co-operative housing schemes', which are not currently acknowledged in Law in the UK.

I have been working with the housing co-operative sector and the Co-operative Party to draw up this legislation.

Read co-op housing expert David Rodgers on why this change is so necessary
I hope that, by changing the law, housing co-ops can attract investors, organise themselves better and gain recognition by the courts and by government.

Fundamentally, I believe that this change will mean that the housing co-op movement in this country can grow and flourish.

Find out how you can help

To maintain the momentum, I need your help and support. Please sign the petition on the Co-operative Party's website  and, if you are on Twitter, please tweet the following to ask the Department of Communities & Local Government to support the campaign:
