Lend a hand to first-time buyers

Speaking at Dartford Borough Council’s annual budget meeting on Monday night (25th February), Cllr. Geoff Prout, Labour’s Shadow Leader of the Council, called upon the ruling Conservative administration to “lend a hand”  to residents – by helping them to get onto the first rung of the property ladder, through the establishment of a Local Authority Mortgage Scheme (LAMS).

“Dartford’s Tory-run council needs to follow the lead of Labour councils around the country, including nearby Gravesham, who have signed up for LAMS – a scheme which enables young people to realise their dream of owning their own home,” said Cllr. Prout . “Why haven’t the Tories chosen to lend a hand to first-time buyers in our borough?”
