The project is the first stage in realising an ambitious vision to transform both the quality and the sustainability of developer housing in the UK. Whilst there is a presumption in favour of sustainable development under the NPPF, much proposed new housing is not actually ‘sustainable’. Whilst developers appear to be able to sell what they build, the RIBA Future Homes Commission found that 70% of people say they would not buy a new house due to the poor quality of design.

English Housing – Empty UK Homes

The great British property scandal’ campaign

Nearly 1 million empty UK homes – why?

As Channel 4 begins a series highlighting the 2 million families who lack adequate housing while nearly 1 million homes lie empty, a charity tells Channel 4 News the government ‘could do more.’

The government has announced a £50m fund to help councils take over and recommission some of the 930,000 homes believed to be empty. The money will be focused on areas with large numbers of unoccupied homes.

A separate £100m programme of empty-homes grants will be made available to registered providers of affordable housing towards the costs of getting privately owned empty homes back into use.

Fired up by this senseless waste, architect and long-term Shelter-supporter, George Clarke, sets out to raise awareness of the issue and calls on the British public to support his campaign to fill up Britain’s empty homes.
