It is important to read the full text of Boris’ ‘Build, Build, Build’ speech – because the most important passage has not been reported on at all
‘We will build fantastic new homes on brownfield sites
and other areas that with better transport and other infrastructure could frankly be suitable and right for development
and address that intergenerational injustice
and help young people get on the housing ladder in the way that their parents and grandparents could
and it is to galvanise this whole process that this government will shortly bring forward the most radical reforms of our planning system since the end of the second world war’
One can imagine the MCHLG and Number 10 advisors taking a red pen to add that line, as rightly brownfield sites, as we know, are not enough.
