First Homes scheme will not tackle the primary driver of the housing crisis
7 February 2020
Responding to the Government’s announcement of the First Homes scheme Jonathan Seager, Place Executive Director, said:
“The Government will need to move quickly to demonstrate the First Homes scheme is deliverable as previous attempts in this area have failed.
“The First Homes scheme will not tackle the primary driver of the UK’s housing crisis – a lack of supply. The Budget provides the ideal opportunity for the Government to show it’s serious about building more homes by investing more money in housebuilding, making more land available and supporting better ways of building.”
