Shropshire Council is to spend £7.2 million to purchase and refurbish 30 two, three and four bedroom homes for Ukrainian and Afghan migrants. The plans have now been approved and were unanimously backed by councillors at a full council meeting on Thursday (2nd Feb).
Funds will be used to purchase the properties for Afghan and Ukrainian families in the region which will come from a government grant of up to £3.2 million. The remaining amount will come from loans and investment will fund an additional £750,000.
There were 14 families in bed and breakfasts under the Homes for Ukraine’s scheme in bed and breakfast with the number possibly increasing in the coming months.
It was confirmed that 26 of the properties would be allocated to Ukrainian families, the remaining four properties allocated to Afghan families who were currently in temporary accommodation.
Labour councillor Tony Parsons strongly supported the new homes for refugees use and said “It’s good to see we are looking to make more provision than we are already doing for refugees who are fleeing war and terror.”
The British Democrats would remind councillor Parsons that he has a duty to represent his constituents, not migrants from around the world! The United Kingdom have taken in far more than our fair share of migrants over the past 70 years, and it’s time to say, Enough is Enough!
British Homes should be for British People!
