Yes Minster, tell us something we don’t already know
Yvette Cooper said: "If we don't build more homes less than a third of today's ten year olds will be able to afford a place of their own in twenty years time. Helping our towns and cities that want to grow can make substantial difference in delivering the new homes we need. "This gives local areas the chance to provide more jobs and homes with higher design and environmental standards too." New Growth Points will help to concentrate future growth at existing urban centres and present a significant opportunity for the new communities to become exemplars of sustainabilty by pioneering eco-development and encapsulating high design standards in parallel with meeting the housing needs of local communities.
