East Devon could solve more than 50% of Devon’s housing need …

… if every one of the new houses in the Local Plan was social or affordable housing.

According to a report on Spotlight tonight, Devon has 32,546 on its waiting lists.

EDDC is planning to build more than 18,000 houses here.

How many will be social or affordable? Depends on who you believe – but somewhere between almost none and hardly any is the best guess!
