No more affordable homes says government
The government just can’t seem to get the hang of making affordable housing. Last month I blogged Last month I blogged that the government was going to make developers who build on flood plains liable for insurance for the next 20 years. I pointed out that this would make houses cost more which would hamper government plans to make lots of affordable housing.
They are doing the same again. This time they are going to force developers to build green energy devices such as wind turbines and solar panels onto new homes. This will of course push the price of new homes up but the government seem not to know this or they are trying to complete two opposite objectives which can’t be done. Someone should tell the government that if they want to build affordable homes they can’t force developers to build unneeded extras onto the homes because the people who purchase the homes will actually pay for it.
