Co-leaders Adrian Ramsay and Carla Denyer highlighted these commitments at their manifesto launch in Brighton.
The Green Party in England and Wales is targeting renters and young voters with significant housing commitments in their newly launched election manifesto.

Key proposals include a £49bn investment over five years to insulate homes and public buildings and install heat pumps.

The party also plans to let councils requisition empty or inadequately insulated properties and introduce rent controls.

Additional pledges include ending the right to buy social housing and empowering local authorities to bring empty homes back into use.

The manifesto outlines a wealth tax aimed at raising at least £50bn annually to support public services.

Co-leader Adrian Ramsay accused major parties of avoiding discussions on funding the NHS and other services without tax hikes.

The Greens are strategically targeting seats in Brighton Pavilion and Bristol Central, with hopes to double their parliamentary representation.

Co-leaders Carla Denyer and Adrian Ramsay, alongside candidate Siân Berry, unveiled these plans in Brighton, emphasizing the need for a fairer tax system to support public services and address housing issues.
