John Penrose - Views on house building

Posted on 5th November, 2018

One of our local two MP's, John Penrose, has written a new policy paper, where he shares his views on house-building in our communities. An extract can be seen in the New Statesman article, 09 Oct 2018, e.g.

  • "... we’d stop big developers from building where the local plans say they shouldn’t, by including the newly-created sites in the local five-year housing supply."
  • "... it would be greener, reducing both commuting (because people can live closer to their jobs) and urban sprawl by cutting the pressure from builders to concrete over green fields and green belts at the edge of towns and cities across the country."
  • "Cheaper homes are one of the most important ways of raising living standards for everyone and improving economic productivity. Building up, not out can go a long way to achieving it."

The full policy paper can be seen here.
