Homeless Westminster

Denbighshire county council: don't evict homeless people from the Westminster hotel on Rhyl seafront.

Denbighshire County Council are planning to evict homeless people who are placed at the Westminster Hotel on a temporary basis because their presence might have "a potential negative impact on the tourist and regeneration programmes for the town".

Homeless people, some with families, are already vulnerable and should not be put in this situation. This is social cleansing, and we believe that it's wrong. We're calling on DCC to keep them housed at the Westminster until they find a suitable long term solution.

    The local homeless need somewhere Safe to live temory. This time of year places become more busy there for the is more danger in the area . Also the is more chance they may fall into bad habits out of desperation. It makes the area look more appealing to tourist there for more money will be spent in the area.

    Please keep this place open for local homeless it cant be nice to sleep ruff .

    Tourism shouldn’t be an excuse for undermining an already vulnerable group of people
