• The average house price is many times higher than the average salary.
  • Houses being built do not match the need of the district.
  • ‘Affordable’ is being calculated according to the incorrect criteria, and needs to be connected to average salary, not average house price.
  • Viability loophole of the builders’ means only 28% of developments are being built.

Potential Solutions

  • Require higher % of properties in a new build development to be genuinely affordable.
  • Be robust in challenging claims about the ‘viability’ loop hole.
  • Build affordable housing in developments with other properties but:
    • Make them all look the same so that you can’t tell the poorer end of the development from the other
    • Build fewer luxury homes
    • Build homes for the many, not the few!
    • Build for the disabled and elderly
