A FORMER mayor has made a plea for social housing to fulfil the needs of everyone in the borough.
In the first ever housing committee meeting, the question of allocation of social housing came up for discussion.
Belhus councillor Charlie Curtis said: “In my ward, I have young mums with two kids who would love a house with a little green space.
The question came up whether war veterans should be prioritised as part of the War Veterans charter.
Cllr Curtis said: “I’m not sure if prioritising is the right method. I served in the army myself. You know what you are signing up for.”
