Liverpool Housing Scheme Folds

Recommended Posts

In total 625 houses may never get off the drawing board, 160 of which would be social housing for rent.

They have hundreds of empty homes in liverpool. They do not need to build more.

Nice of them to knock down all of those perfectly good houses to make way for some new build sh!t. Would've been cheaper to keep the existing homes and to fit them out whilst preserving some of Liverpools architectural heritage at the same time, but then again all of those lucrative building contracts that went to Councillors' mates and family members wouldn't of been needed...

Yeah, we'll end up paying for this through rises in Mafioso Protection Racket Payments, sorry Council Tax, much like we pay for all the other "Services" that we hardly ever get.

But, we'd rather moan about it than do anything about it so Ho Hum...Toxteth Riots 2010 anybody?

The streets of liverpool are not paved with the sleeping bodies of homeless people are they?

If UP TO 22000 people in Liverpool are on the waiting list for social housing it doesn't mean they are homeless now.

empty houses 11000.

New build policy should be:

1. When all existing empty property is dealt with (either forced sales to council on the cheap, or the owner lets it out)

2. When all existing building work is finished and sold

3. Then plans can be looked at for creating more homes.

Most people on the council lists just want cheap rent.

Wonder how we can get surveys commission to show that?

We don't have to.

If the market is left to itself then it would have sorted itself out.

I see nothing wrong though with the state providing housing for people. It's got to be cheap enough to be worthwhile though. Boarding up whole areas for demolition was insanity a la john prescott and should never be done again.

The rent paid for 50 families in westminster for 1 year would have paid for the rennovation of every empty property in liverpool.

And should people have to buy a house in order to live somewhere? I don't think they should. And in recessionary times renting makes sense if it allows you to go where the work is.

Bailing out the banks was done wrongly. Very wrongly.

Ah, but that would be Common Sense, and we can't possibly allow any of that into the equation.
