Think tank report's vision will be good news for home buyers says estate agency ehB

Thu 05 Jul 2018

Proposals put forward in a report by a new campaigning think tank suggesting a radical rethink into how the UK manages the housing market will be good news for home hunters, says Leamington estate agency ehB Residential.

Suggestions in “Green, pleasant and affordable”,  the first report issued by Conservative Think Tank, Onward, include increasing council powers to buy land to develop new villages and towns and recommends building discounted housing for young people.

The report’s author, MP Neil O’Brien, explained:We need to move to an active planning system where local government takes a leading role in assembling land for development and creating planned new communities with proper infrastructure.

“Where Britain has created new planned communities in the past, like Milton Keynes or London’s Docklands, they are among the most successful parts of our economy.

“Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to deliver the housing that Britain needs. Look at continental Europe. We see denser, more liveable cities with better public transport and infrastructure. We see great places to live, but much more being built. It shows us that it’s not only achievable to build in places and ways that people are willing to accept – it’s essential.”

ehB Residential MD Edward Bromwich, whose estate agency handles the sale of many new housing developments across Warwickshire, said:  “Such radical policies would not only help provide the 300,000 homes a year the country so desperately needs, but would also ensure those homes formed part of the wider community.

“The proposal to create half a million homes specifically for younger people would help ensure a good balance of generations in communities where younger people are often pushed out because they cannot afford to live there – with the resulting negative impact on schools and local facilities.”

 ·        Edward Bromwich says the new think tank report on the housing market will help home hunters.

"Hi Juliana, I was driving past your offices today and realised that I never contacted you to say thank you for all your help in the purchase of Villiers Street. I am so very sorry that it took me so long, it’s been a crazy few weeks! From my first property viewings with Clive to collecting the keys from Chris on completion day and all the parts in-between with yourself, I thoroughly enjoyed working with ehB. I saw lots of properties with an array of local estate agents and ehB were the most professional, knowledgeable and personable out of all of them (by a country mile!). You were fantastic at keeping track of the process the whole way through and really made me feel like an important customer. After speaking with many friends and family, it seems this is a very unique experience of an estate agents (particularly as a buyer) and therefore I really want you to know how appreciative I am. The house is really starting to feel like home already and I’m so pleased with the purchase. I have already sung the praises of ehB to my friends, family and colleagues. Once again, thank you for all your help in the purchase. All the best, G Sharp "
