Will Cameron's 'affordable houses' mean even more land will need to be released?

Date: 6/10/2015

The Prime Minister has announced his intention to amend s106 rules to require "affordable housing" to be for both rent and purchase.

John Silvester, the Society's Communications Manager, commented "Houses to rent can be controlled so that they can not be subsequently sold on. Will this be the case with affordable houses for sale? Or will it mean they're only "affordable" once, initially?"

Silvester added "Thus we'll end up having to find even more land for housing."
