Yes to homes: Promoting the new building of homes in Suffolk
The housing problem in Suffolk and Cambridge
In our cities, many people can’t afford to rent a home in the neighbourhoods where they grew up. In the countryside, homes are more expensive than in cities and towns, and often way beyond the means of many local residents.
The solution to this problem is simple. We need to build more homes. But to make a bad situation worse, people are saying ‘no’ to much-needed new homes in their community.
Just a small handful of people can block the new homes that are a lifeline for many. When they are the only people putting pressure on local politicians their views are heard loud and clear.
All too often the people who actually need homes are missing from local debates. That’s why we have launched the Yes to Homes campaign from the National Housing Federation. We want to make sure people who do support more housing are included in the debate.
What is stopping the right homes, being built in the right place and at the right price where you live? And what can you do to put pressure on local decision makers, mainly councillors, to change things?
