Coupled with the fact they do nothing about the loopholes that allow developers to get away with not building the agreed-upon ‘affordable’ and social housing, its no wonder it’s getting harder and harder for people to get on the property ladder. Everything is geared towards the wealthy. The biggest problem is that private landlords charge way too much for rent, so people can’t save up a deposit. I don’t even live in a nice city and it’s not uncommon to see landlords charging for a room in a house share. It also happens to be the same landlords who charge too much rent for retail spaces and are killing off the high street. I’ve sent this to my Council. Who are hell-bent on allowing thousand more houses being built hardly any of which are affordable our roads have crammed the schools struggling surgeries can’t cope and everywhere you look its chaos when do you say enough is enough. Affordable homes?
