I welcome the Journal article of 26th November which highlights the urgent need for house building in the North East, specifically on brownfield sites.
In the UK we simply do not build enough houses (or other infrastructure) to support an ever growing population and our constantly growing immigration numbers. So it is a damning indictment on our housing infrastructure in the North East that we are below even the national average.
A focus on brownfield sites has been UKIP policy for many years and would generate significant improvement in our region. Let’s make sure that this includes affordable homes for first-time buyers whilst protecting our cherished greenbelt.
