Liberal Democrats set out plans to build a million new affordable homes by 2020

Don has welcomed the publication of radical proposals by the Liberal Democrats to tackle the severe shortage of affordable and social housing.

Don said:

"There are over six thousand families on the housing waiting list in Bath and North East Somerset, yet fewer and fewer social rented homes are being built. The number nationally has halved since Labour came to power.

"Meanwhile house prices have soared, growing at almost four times the rate of earnings. Many local young people in Bath are being left stranded, unable to afford to get even a foot on the housing ladder.

 "These new proposals from the Liberal Democrats respond to both these problems. They would deliver the UK's most ambitious home-building programme in over a quarter of a century. 100,000 new social, low cost and affordable houses every year for 10 years to benefit those in housing need.

"This is the housing revolution that people in Bath desperately need."
