An “early bird” correspondent writes:
As a correspondent has written, Simon Clarke, the levelling up secretary, Simon Jupp’s new boss, threatens to water down affordable home requirements across England.
Simon Jupp writes “As your MP, East Devon will of course come first”. How many are now registered as in need of social housing in East Devon? In March 2021 there were more than 2,618 households and I can’t believe all these needs will be fulfilled in the near future. (not if Goodmores Farm is an example in Exmouth. 16 affordable houses in a development of 298 houses.)
How can Simon Jupp reconcile East Devon’s needs and his new bosses dictats?
