Eversheds Sutherland comment: Prime Minister Theresa May announces £2bn for council homes expansion

    Bruce Dear, head of London real estate at Eversheds Sutherland, says:

    “Our housing crisis is crying out for a national crusade to cure it. The optimal solution is to use cost effective modular construction (which can deliver thousands of flats in weeks) to build millions of council and multi-tenure homes. This modular construction revolution must be backed by massive and joined-up government and institutional investment. If we don’t wage this total war on housing want, we won’t even flicker the dial of housing disadvantage. And if planning law or policy gets in the way, we should change it. We must grasp this opportunity, or be condemned to deliver the Great British Dream of home ownership only for the rich and the chronically over-mortgaged.”
