Students' Union President, Abraham Baldry, declared the Student Housing Forum that took place on the 13th of November a resounding success.
The Forum resulted in the creation of a team of people who want to work on a student housing manifesto to be taken to local and parliamentary candidates for the 2015 elections.
The manifesto itself is currently in development and will be worked on over the next few months, with the final draft's release set for February.
I am really happy that so much work is going into showing candidates for the 2015 elections how important housing is for the students of Brighton.
The Forum itself was an extremely useful and vital part of the process which has given us a lot of information; I am confident that this will mean we can ensure that the final manifesto is tailored to solving the problems which were brought up.
If you would like to get involved in the work that is being done on the issue of student housing then please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
