Abstract

Last week saw the concomitant announcement of the government’s intention to build almost half a million new homes by 2015, and a 99 per cent drop in affordable housing construction. Christine Whitehead finds the government’s strategy to be an encouraging move but it is essentially lacking in efforts to source a long-term solution to the housing crisis.
