Concreting the Countryside

The government wants 500,000 new homes in the east and south-east of England. There is a lot of opposition and I suspect that like most of the things this government does, they will only half do it.

We do need more homes and from where I live here in rural Suffolk, I can see plenty of space for tasteful development. But I doubt we'll get it, as all you ever get are lots of little boxes with handkerchief-sized gardens.

What we do need are a lot of slightly larger houses, where people can work from home most or some of the time in a much better environment.

I've done that for over thirty years and it works!
