The new Mayor of Bristol Marvin Rees has announced a new member for housing.
It comes as figures obtained by ITV News showed that thousands of people are on a waiting list for just a few dozen houses in Bristol.
Today we spoke to Cllr Paul Smith, Cabinet Member for Homes and Communities, and asked him what he's got to say to the 9000 people currently on the waiting list:
We know how important it is to have somewhere secure to live - where you know you're not going to be turfed out after six months
The Labour mayor put housing at the forefront of his campaign, promising to build 2000 homes a year by 2020.
- The Council has taken 80 hectares of land off the market so they can build on it
- They aim to build 2000 new homes by 2020
New figures released after a Freedom of Information request by ITV News show thousands of people are on a waiting list for just a few dozen houses in Bristol.
More than 9000 people are on the waiting list for social housing in the city but of all the properties under council ownership only 41 are available to rent.
We are committed to reaching out to people around Bristol, across the West of England, across the country, who want to join with us in investing in Bristol to get the homes we need, to tackle our social crisis.
It's top of our priority list.
