Synopsis

The inside story of London's housing crisis, by the award-winning author of Ground Control



London is facing the worst housing crisis in modern times, with knock-on effects for the rest of the UK. Despite the desperate shortage of housing, tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of affordable homes are being pulled down, replaced by luxury apartments aimed at foreign investors. In this ideological war, housing is no longer considered a public good. Instead, only market solutions are considered - and these respond to the needs of global capital, rather than the needs of ordinary people. In politically uncertain times, the housing crisis has become a key driver creating and fuelling the inequalities of a divided nation. Anna Minton cuts through the complexities, jargon and spin to give a clear-sighted account of how we got into this mess and how we can get out of it.

Staff Choice

Well researched and comprehensive analysis of the current housing shortage. Anna Minton reveals how a combination of planning policies, economic growth and runaway property prices have created a crisis where affordable accomodation is now a very real problem depite the repeated efforts of governments, councils and organisations. On one hand, her perspective may seem one-sided but she does throw up some imaginative ideas as to how we can get out of this "mess" and more importantly, highlights an issue that is increasingly being felt worldwide.
