Government plans for housing growth receive thumbs up from councillor

Government plans for housing growth receive thumbs up from councillor

News that prime minister David Cameron plans to open up areas of brownfield sites for housing developments could have positive implications for those looking for property for sale in Gloucestershire.

The plans include the release of thousands of acres of publicly-owned brownfield land for house building, in a bid to improve growth and affordability in the housing market. Gloucester City Council leader Paul James told ThisisGloucestershire that could work well to stimulate growth in the county.

Mr James: "We need to look at the detail but the idea of trying to be as active as possible to get the housing market moving again is the right thing to do. As a policy for the country it's a very good idea.

"It's all about stimulating growth. We know we need housing, we know we need construction activity, and we need growth. This is a creative way of achieving that."

Property developers will also be given the opportunity to 'buy now, pay later' when it comes to building as part of the plans.
