Bbc: Solution To The Housing Crisis

Recommended Posts

The solution to the housing crisis - new affordable housing... it was on the news 10 minutes ago. Check this out:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-12309755

Not ONE mention that CHEAPER housing is the solution. No, instead we have these PRE-FABS which you can now thankfully get a MORTGAGE on (not possible decades ago!).

I despair.

And the land with PP for yer prefab costs how much?

YES THAT'S THE PROBLEM.

It is like the £60k house scheme labour came up with.

It was £60k for for construction PLUS LAND.

The stupidity was that a normal brick/tile house, built en-mass, costs less than £60k to build anyway.... probably closer to £30k when build in volume.

That's what I thought of when I first saw this. Those 60K Prescott houses that after you included the land in the East Midlands cost 225K. 6K off 225K is fck all.

It's the price of the land ponzi, that is the problem.

Exactly - planning laws, land restriction, complete sham.

Just wait until the new NIMBY law comes in.Villages are going to have a referendum on any new building proposal so you can imagine how many are going to get passed.

So residential owners can deny the building of new plots near their own property? Is this only in England and Wales or is it in Scotland, too? Honestly, I must have missed this story....

I thought they were trying to reduce the powers nimby's have? :(

I'm not against nimbyism per se, just think you can't have nimbyism and an open door housing policy.

Edit Ooops, I meant open door immigration policy.

WE've been through this before.

Village of 200 people cannot outvote a HMO with 500 people techincally living there.
