Complete Solution To The Housing/family Crisis

Recommended Posts

thinking about the situation we mostly all face here. trying to find a house to live in thats secure, affordable with enough space to grow a family in, plus close to work.

council housing:

why dont the local authorities embark in giant house building programs and then rent the property back to local tenants, thus freezing out private investors in the rental sector and all the profiteering that goes with it. with the rents, the developments should be able to cover the actual (not profitable) building costs. they cannot be sold at all. long term, secure rental only.

seems pretty obvious to me, until i remembered im living in the millenium and governments dont do anything for the people. this clearly shows how profit and commerce are now local government prioritys, over the welfare of the people that actually pay the taxes they seem to spend on themselves with area diversity coordinators and the like.

simple solution.

why isnt YOUR local authority doing it ?

ask your MP ?

ask john prescotts office.

I believe LAs are still paying off the 60 years loans borrowed through the 60s and 70s.

The RTB money did not go into their coffers as I understand it. I`m sure a poster awhile back said it went to the government.

So what effect would it have on Council Tax and Business Rates if LAs went on another borrowing frenzy.

granted, but its obvious to me its either one or the other.

your council or the general public.

one things for sure. someones lending big money,

but this time its not the council - its our new social landlords - the BTL.

what a sham. they have fobbed off their housing responsibilitys to private individuals, which equals poorer quality, more expensive housing for the tenants with less rights and security.

what are we paying these councillors for again ?

seems they do less and less for more and more.

LAs are in effect controlled by the government of the day. Local democracy went out the window 25 years ago alongside the true unpaid councillors who did have powers and sincere objectives regardless of political allegiance. If councils today in London do not toe the Tsars line they are threatened with withdrawal of funds.

This would work if the local authority/whatever govt agency could get the land free or cheaply........building land in many areas is £1 million an acre or about a £2.2 million a hectare but agricultural land is only a few thousand pounds an acre.........Granting ordinary planning permission gives enormous windfalls to landownwers .inflating the cost of the house by more than 100% in most places.............so this somehow has to be bypassed.........

charlie. its true. and its makes me realise that this country - and for that matter. gross capitalism is not for me. i know what you mean of the old real days of politics. kinnock, foot, thatcher, fowler and before that bevin, wilson, atley.

what do we get now. cocked up fancy school boys with no life experience, or much else experience with the expection of international banking.

our main government spends its time mostly aborad or trying its best to remove out cicil rights, while local council gleem more and more from local taxes while offering us less and less services that matter. sure, there are lots of diversity services and single parent time care advisors, but theres not enough policemen and not enough social infrastructure such as housing.

here lies democracy - killed by capitalism.

i hope your children like it.

and to answer your points michael.

true., land costs, but if barrat can do it AND turn massive profits, uncorrupted, trimmed down local government can do it for NO PROFIT. i am a businessman thats taken a start up in 4 years to a turnover of 600k pa. i could do the job myself. i could be a housing minister and i could solve this.

but i havent a chance for all the reasons charlie said above.

You sound rather immature, pathetic and downtrodden for someone who owns a business turning over 0.6 million pounds. And too socialist by half for that matter. I reckon your story is ******.

And they call me a troll.

China or Cuba have space ....

You seriously think government controlled housing would result in a better situation than now? Markets are imperfect but they are a hell of a lot better than the alternative.

Because there's no votes in it. Removal of RTB is political suicide.

Edit...

And obviously because they can't afford it once they've finished paying all dog's tax abusers.

well 'jack' you are probably the kind of person who is suprised that other people can be motivated and skilled enough, with a desire to produce the best available service within their fields to make those sums. this drive probably eludes you.

i say you go back to sitting in your semi and keep hoping the prices wont crash and that you might not have to face that HUGE debt you have run up since thinking people like me would pay it off for you.

pretty soon, say 6-12 months your going to look like a total sap.

im not.witin the next 3 years im either going to be housed fairly, or ill be in hawai.

with my money. not your money.

with us contractors, not uk ones.

bye then.
