HOUSING REPORT WANTS THE GOVERNMENT TO USE MORE PUBLICLY OWNED LAND

The government is being urged to build houses on publicly owned land.

A new report by the National Economic Social Council indicates that our housing system is relying too much on the decisions of private developers.

It says instead units should be built in areas like former docks and rail depots.

Report Author Dr. Rory O’Donnell says that at the moment, our system tends to blame developers for hoarding land.
