  7. £700M Welcome Boost For Build-To-Let Homes

    My problem is that it is more of the same, a corporate cartel stranglehold on resources. In the case of public sector employees & those on housing benefit. The private landlords, corporate or micro biz landlords are middle men , taking tax payers money to provide houses. As you say, "Genuine social housing construction would be preferable, but this is as close as we're likely to get" I don't think this justifies it. I suspect the strength of the VI corporate lobby would destroy any serious attempt to build large scale social housing. There is plenty of talk of self build, on hpc, but judging by the lack of posts / input to the hpc self build forum, many are unwilling or unable (due to the land hoarding VI's etc ) to organise, collaborate, fund or discuss the matter in depth.
