Affordable Homes In South Lakeland

EDM number 1557 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 24/07/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Housing.

That this House recognises the growing crisis in the provision of affordable housing, the average house price in England and Wales being 7.8 times the average salary and more than 10 times average salaries in South Lakeland; notes that small site developers building 10 units or fewer are exempt from making a percentage of these units affordable; further recognises the need for affordable homes in South Lakeland, where 7.5 per cent of properties are second homes resulting in high house and rental prices; and calls on the Government to reinstate rules requiring small sites to adhere to affordable housing obligations and enable the people of South Lakeland to buy and rent property affordably.

This motion has been signed by a total of 4 MPs.
