England’s rural housing crisis cannot be resolved by simply building more homes
Sunday at Conservative Party Conference saw MP Neil O’Brien joined by a panel of experts to debate the best way to bring affordable homes back to rural England.
The debate needs to refocus on tackling the root causes of limited supply, such as local opposition to development and lack of infrastructure and have a concerted push towards increasing ownership occupation and strategic developments with well-designed infrastructure.
Giving people tax incentives for investing in other things outside of bricks and mortar can make a difference.
The panel agreed that affordability is also impacted by how land value is captured. It is important to capture more of the value of the development for the community.
It is absolutely essential that housing is built to only address "local housing need. "
