Lib Dem plan to tackle the housing crisis

by Douglas McCall on 16 May, 2017

 

If the developers won’t build houses the Lib Dems will!

Not enough homes, properties sitting empty, exorbitant prices. The housing market is a closed and exclusive game for monopoly investors.

Is this acceptable?

The Lib Dems are laying down the law to developers: unless you build the homes that Britain needs, we will. The Lib Dems aim to build 300,000 homes a year in the next parliament.

That’s real action to tackle the housing crisis.

    • Mrs Ahmed,

      I have forwarded your enquiry to our Housing Spokesperson to see if he can help in any way.

      The main issue is that the Government has forced the sale of Council houses for over 30 years, so there is now a major shortage. The Council can’t house people in houses that don’t exist.
