Gove wants councils to sell off your family silver — don't let them
It’s really simple. Your local council shouldn’t have to sell off your libraries, tips, and heritage to make ends meet. But with 1 in 5 councils nearly bankrupt, it’s more of a risk than ever.
Local Government Minister, Michael Gove, wants to avoid reversing the 40% cut to local authority funding by giving your council new powers to sell off YOUR public assets.
He has just run a consultation on these plans, with a decision due shortly. This is a key moment to apply pressure. Can you send our template email NOW to demand he doesn’t force councils to sell off the family silver?
