Stop playing politics and go all in on housing policy
By Adam Challis
I have been inclined lately to proffer up yet another commentary – to add to the legion – on government plans to boost housing supply. I like to think it would be a well-reasoned critique, with a planning nip here and a land value tuck there, alongside yet another clarion call for more money. The presumption would be to spend wisely of course, these are still austere days after all – and away we go.
Except “we” never do go very far. Except housing supply never does respond very much. This, as a result, will not be that commentary.
