McAslan’s ten point plan to solve the housing crisis

Comment

Build more council houses. Selling them off cheap for years is what has caused the shortage of affordable and key worker housing and allowed private landlords to charge very high rents, which we taxpayers have to pay for through the benefits system. Also pressurize the volume house builders to sell all the land that they are banking to local authorities and self builders. It is easier to make a profit by building fewer houses and selling them for a high price than building the many houses that are needed and selling them more cheaply.
