Cian outlines the issues with the Bills including the help to buy approach that will push up house prices- and that developers have lobbied for these measures. Also that the LDA Bill is anti-democratic and proposes to take powers away from local elected councillors, and to build unaffordable homes on valuable public land. We also discuss the need to progress the Referendum on the Right to Housing, and the lack of quality inspections of private homeless accommodation providers.
