It's even worse IMO. Developers tend to apply for big houses first (the locals complain less) and then apply for permission to build lots of small ones once they've started, which is easily given, thus double crossing the locals and the people who have bought from them thinking there's be no plebs on the estate! They even sell the fag end of estates that prove hard to sell on to Housing Assocs for small houses and flats. So that estimate of 330.000 i.e. 2 years suppy is very conservative. You can house 1 family on an acre or scores, and the latter is always the ultimate aim but not the initial proposal.

The govt reckons the problem is a shortage of small houses so if they truly gave a damn they'd say no more big houses, only small ones - and the landbank would expand to millions of units ...
