The budget pledge on housing is good news. But as I realised on moving to the UK from India, it must be designed to increase community, not isolation
The chancellor has pledged to fix the UK's “broken housing market”. The investment he announced in this week's budget – which included £15.3bn of new funding – is meant to deliver at least 300,000 more houses by the 2020s. He has also pledged to deliver five new garden towns by 2050 which would mean almost a million more houses.
