FAIL

The project is garbage. It's the same old story i.e. gimmicky "cheap" house, but it has to be built on land, and that's where the problems start.

What use is a cheap little house if the land cost a small fortune?

Answer = no use at all

Makes a nice story for the BBC though :rolleyes:

Maybe cheap prefabs are the answer?

A rich Branson-type should built a ton of these places on brownfield somewhere (or even container boxes!) and allow people cheap long term rents. Make it a gated community to keep law and order.

This way, totally freeze out the baby boomers in the housing market. They will have to drop prices severely before anyone thinks that buying is actually worth the trouble.

Unfortunately the NIMBYs, mostly boomers, are ahead of you, and control the planning system.

See some of my nice neighbours, below.
