Liba Hoskin


Liba Hoskin is a Walworth resident of 30 years, and coordinator of Walworth Green Party. She is a retired maths teacher, and mother to three adult children. A housing campaigner, she is active in Alvey TRA, Elephant Amenity Network and Southwark Defend Council Housing. She has volunteered in local parks to help improve local green spaces. 

Liba stands:
  • For investing in education, culture, sport, youth and adult care - as a means of saving on health and crime expenses, and increasing residents' quality of life.
  • For cleanup and investment in public transport, secure cycling routes and quietways, planting and maintenance of trees to improve air quality - also saving on health expenses and increasing quality of life.
  • For preserving and investing in good quality council housing stock, as a best means for providing secure and sustainable housing. This also secures income from rents for Southwark Council to be able to invest back in the community and to prevent homelessness.
  • For rent control to achieve fair rents.
  • Against socially and environmentally wasteful demolitions of council estates, and the breaking up of communities.
  • Against any form of human or environmental exploitation. Twitter_bird_logo_2012.svg.png

Ignas_and_Liba.pngProperty company Delancey has been forced by huge local community pressure to reconsider their redevelopment offer for Elephant & Castle Shopping Centre and the London College of Communication site. 700 formal objections were lodged. Less than 4% of the proposed 1,000 homes were to be at social rent. The plans failed to meaningfully address the future of existing traders, including the large cluster of Latin American businesses. Delancey, based in the Virgin Islands (an alleged tax haven), are projected to make a profit of £154 million from the scheme.

Harkers_cropped.jpgThe Walworth community is fighting to save one of the last surviving Victorian scene-painting studios, based at 'Flints' at the Queens Row. Harkers Studio housed a local business which served both the theatre industry and the wider arts community. Labour-run Southwark Council has granted planning permission to redevelop the building into flats and office space, without much consultation.
