Church of England proposes 9,000 new homes on its excess land

Comment

Most market towns that are growing and have declining retail presence in their centres are constructed mostly of 2 and 3 storey buildings that are perfectly structurally capable of being added to and/or repurposed to uses other than retail without a need to extend into agricultural land. However that is not happening despite that much of the housing shortage could be addressed by such thinking. It has also been proved several times in different parts of the planet that providing homes for the homeless for free is cost effective and along with universal income gets rid of poverty of many kinds. It doesn’t happen ONLY because the rich and powerful won’t benefit from it. The CofE need to prove that they are not part of the rich and powerful cliche by making better (not necessarily less profitable) use of their plentiful resources.
