Building homes is the only solution to housing crisis.

Housing Minister Grant Shapps has indicated that we need to be building more than 200,000 new homes each year to resolve the current UK housing shortage, in an interview on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme.

He outlined the Government's three pronged approach to stimulate house building, including extending right to buy, releasing Government land for house building and reforming the planning system, stating "Over all you have to get all things working in tandem, there is not one single thing you can do to solve a housing crisis that has been building up over years and years." He went on to say that the Government would be "putting out a housing strategy next month and we're going to talk a lot more about those things in that as well."
