What is wrong with UK housing?


Peter, I couldn't agree more. Another issue is sustainability, there is an enormous amount talked about it in terms of energy, but what about the sustainability of housing. New housing is often too small, starter homes are just that; enough until you have a small family that gets larger. Often the numbers of bed spaces is such that the living space and storage are insufficient. In Yorkshire we had a garage that cars wouldn't fit into! Then you need to move on, more sales for the house builders, lot of hassle and lost memories. Housing should be fit for purpose to accommodate a families as they grow, shrink, change.
