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?”
