“Councils are expected to be given new freedoms to build their own homes, while also being forced to assess local need and set targets to construct more housing in their area.”
You see where this is going again?
Developers get a “council house target”, start building, council houses “unviable”
Council has to find money to build council houses from their own “profits” on other services such as refuse collection, planning fees, council tax
Magic money trees.
And from a government that deliberately stopped building them.
Yet some will think this is wonderful, and vote for them.
Remember, this is a desperate minority government – the NHS was “safe in their hands” … education was safe in their hands …
