  1. A bit of a hostile review, but all the same, a fascinating range of issues exploding out of a quite bizarrely ideological appointment - and for that matter Commission. Is going about housing like a mad mullah really going to help ? https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2018/nov/25/would-you-trust-roger-scruton-to-design-your-new-home-commission-building-better-building-beautiful Some further digging: https://www.designingbuildings.co.uk/wiki/Building_Better,_Building_Beautiful_Commission https://www.dezeen.com/2018/11/14/opinion-building-better-building-beautiful-commission-sam-jacob/
  2. Almost two thirds of UK councils are in ‘severe’ need of affordable housing https://www.bigissue.com/latest/social-activism/almost-two-thirds-of-uk-councils-are-in-severe-need-of-affordable-housing/ A total of one in three councils in England stated that permitted development would have a have a negative impact on councils’ ability to build affordable homes whereas just four per cent thought that it would improve matters. And the lack of housing is not helping local authorities to stem the tide of rising homelessness – with 70 per cent of England’s 124 councils reporting an increase in statutory homelessness over the past 12 months. That trend is replicated in rough sleeping with 57 per cent confirming that they have seen a rise in people living on the streets over the same period... ..... “Relaxing permitted development has led to tens of thousands of new homes being created without having to get full planning permission – for example through the conversion of commercial buildings into homes – and this means that councils are unable to secure a contribution to affordable housing from the developer, and little or no thought is given to the most basic issues, such as where children can play or whether there are enough doctors’ surgeries in the area.” Paul O’Brien, chief executive of APSE, added: “The government must be bold and ambitious in challenging the shortfall of housing for those in the most need in society. “As part of this, it must help councils return to their historic role as a provider of homes – recognising that evidence clearly suggests that we cannot rely on the private sector alone to meet the shortfall of housing supply.”

  5. 'Richard Bilton meets families forced out of their homes by landlords, and asks whether or not the government's reliance on the rental sector is placing people at risk.' It's only half an hour, so not expecting much. And Mr B is away, or I'd be betting him ten quid now that there will be no mention of the preferential tax treatment of BTLers.
