Arrow 3 million new homes by 2020........

"In a policy shift, the green paper will include the first major boost for new council housing since Labour came to power in 1997. Brown used a London speech to Labour's National Policy Forum yesterday to say councils would play a role in meeting the ambitious target he announced last week of building 3 million new homes by 2020........

.......the green paper will propose using the accelerated planning process introduced to build postwar 'new towns' like Milton Keynes to speed construction of a range of green 'eco-towns' providing a total of up to 100,000 additional homes.

The Housing Minister, Yvette Cooper, ........said that with half of new buyers now relying on money from their families, 'we're clear this is completely unsustainable. And it is completely unfair if your chance of owning your own home is dependent on whether your parents and grandparents were homeowners before you.'"

Considering the state that many council house tenants leave their houses a good flush through with water every once in a while would do them good.
