An MP who spoke this week about a local Church

Darren Henry is the Broxtowe MP at Nottinghamshire for the Conservative party. On Tuesday evening there was a debate called Houses in Multiple Occupation: Approval which Darren introduced. Towards the end of his first statement he referred to the Christ Church Chilwell which is based in College Road Nottingham which can be seen on this website. It would be fantastic if other MPs would be willing to discuss matters of their local religious groups. Interestingly Christ Church lists on their website the Hope Nottingham group which is an community I helped to establish back in 2008 when I was coordinating Hope08 so I am very proud of them. So here is the comment from Darren towards the end of his initial statement in the debate.

The concentration of HMOs in certain areas can lead to a transient population, with tenants coming and going quickly, resulting in a lack of stability and the sense of local community cohesion being broken. Further havoc can be caused when our communities of HMOs are not given thorough consideration before final approval. Recently, a construction company damaged a water main in Beeston while constructing a new HMO, leading to many houses being uninhabitable. Many groups and individuals in the community rallied around to assist the constituents there, and I would like to give a special thanks to those at Christ church in Chilwell for the help they gave. However, many families have been left without answers and indicate to me that no one, as of yet, has been held to account. I have written to the Secretary of State about that specific issue and await a response.
