Palmy Revolution's "W.O.F., not Cough" petition
A Palmerston North petition calling for the introduction of housing "Warrants of Fitness" issued by the council to landlords, making it a requirement to maintain a property to a basic standard that does not compromise the health of the tenants.
"We at Palmy Revolution have heard countless stories of Palmerston North residents living in unhealthy, damp and cold rental homes, and the health consequences of doing so.
We believe that action needs to be taken now to avoid the health of any more of our children being compromised. We as a city call for the introduction of a local housing Warrant of Fitness certificate which would be issued by the council to landlords, after their properties have passed a healthy homes inspection. Council owned buildings would also be expected to meet housing WOF standards. Not only would taxpayer dollars currently spent on avoidable healthcare costs be saved, but our community would be strengthened by drastically improving the lives of many of the most vulnerable residing in our city today.
Please sign our "WOF, not Cough" petition to show your support, and lets make a difference!"
