Nothing will fix London's housing crisis, until you end hyper centralisation of London and start investing in tier 2 cities, in other words creating equal opportunities in places other than London.

So more russian oligarchs can buy them and leave them empty until they die. Fantastic.

it's not just building more homes, it's making sure first time buyers can afford them, and ensure people who buy them are living in them, not buying them to increase their property portfolio, or using it as a buy-to-let property - let homes be for living, not making a living!

Most of them homes no one can afford anyway so rubbish

Thereโ€™s plenty of housing and empty housing all throughout London. The problem is nobody can afford them

Making houses is useless if no one can actually afford to live in them.
Thats what the "just build more housing" types dont get.

by Phantom Thief Irwin 1 year ago

Nah. Itโ€™s not about space is about affordability. London needs affordable housing.

The British have always been strategic. I am sure they will and have found a way to deal with the housing crisis

Bollocks bollocks bollocks!!!! Reverse council home sell offs, ban foreign property owners, ban empty properties.

Developments for those foreign investors who then rent them out at unaffordable prices.

Building homes over railways is a good idea as long as the buildings are stable, house lots of people and ensure that there will be a fire exit from the railway incase the worse happens

Having profitable business outside of London would distribute the population mass.

Yes, but are they AFFORDABLE which means under 200 grand and within the scope of young adults to purchase without the need of these ridiculous shared ownership plans?

My family can't park on the street that they are building the house because of that work.

This is madness! Itโ€™s becoming like a shanty town or a favella but in high rise flat form! There needs to be incentives for people and businesses based in other cities or something to stop the obsession with specifically in London. Quality of life so much better in other cities at this rate, and cheaper too!

More house's for dodgy Chinese and russian money to be brought in. Have a look at newly built appartments in London at night and 90% of the light's will be off. They are purchased by foreign investors and left empty occasionally checked by someone. After a few year's they are sold for profit. This is how the property market has been inflated in London in particular and when or if that's stopped we will be back in recession.

Why not green space over a rail network to create corridors of parks around cities

Well, Japan build the trains AFTER the buildings, so I can't see why we can't do it the other way round...
