Its not building more houses which are affordable its providing more affordable housing!

Most commentators who talk about affordable housing are under the illusion that we have to build more housing. But we don’t need to build more housing we just need to ensure we build the right sort. Instead of giving planning permission for and allowing developers to build the houses they know will sell we need to change the share of housing allocated for affordable housing!

Instead of luxury housing; housing built for investment purposes or holiday homes we need to concentrate on houses for people to live in, whether by renting or buying.
