I am going to dispense with too many convoluted sentences or opinion and get straight to the point. This is really a question of maths.
The Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister have announced a major housing and planning package that will help deliver:
“Up to 15,000 affordable homes and bring 5,000 empty homes back into use using new capital funding of £300m and the infrastructure guarantee”
I am interested in the 5,000 empty homes element of this.
