Video: Haringey housing lead confuses ‘affordable’ and social housing


Cllr Alan Strickland is – for the moment – Haringey Council’s ‘Cabinet Member for Housing Regeneration and Planning’ and has therefore been a key player in the ‘HDV’, the controversial ‘Haringey Development Vehicle’ that involves the handing over for demolition of thousands of social homes to a private company.

Haringey is also at the centre of a controversy because a significant number of councillors have been deselected by their members. ‘Moderates’ complain that this is a Momentum-driven ‘purge’. Members point out that there is a close correlation between councillors’ support for the HDV and deselection, while councillors who oppose it have been reselected even if more to the right of the party.

Cllr Strickland appeared, alongside award-winning journalist and anti-HDV campaigner Aditya Chakrabortty, on the London edition of the BBC’s Sunday Politics programme to discuss the HDV and the concerns of local residents.
