GBH’s dream of building new homes – out of touch with reality, really !!!
Gordon Brown’s plan for 3 million new homes was dealt a blow on Wednesday after an official report failed to back his housebuilding target for the south-east. The report on the regional assembly’s draft south-east plan published on Tuesday disagreed with the government target of 38,000 new homes a year. This was set by the government office for the south-east. Planning inspectors said the south-east target should be raised instead from 28,900 to 32,000 homes a year equating to a total of 640,000 by 2026. This is 3,200 more than the South East Regional Assembly’s draft south-east plan published last year.
