Resource description

We have far too few homes in Britain, and this drives house prices upwards. Even the recent collapse in mortgage availability has done little to drive prices down substantially, especially when compared to the US. Tim Leunig examines the government’s new planning proposals and finds that rather than promoting the building of new homes in areas that need them, it is likely to be a NIMBYist’s charter.
