Housing seems finally to be getting more attention from our politicians and both Labour and Conservative conferences promised new measures to ease the housing crisis. Which is good.
As the Tories are currently in government, their solutions (see the post below) are perhaps more important just now as they are more likely to be implemented. So long as we don’t have an early election of course. Although if so they may get picked up by the incoming government.
