The Sunday Mirror are saying the new Tory lib Dem coalition government are planning to end the previous governments policy of using the planning process to achieve 25% of new housing development for affordable rent or ownership.

We know that the Tory Lib Dem coalition have removed £230million from new build affordable housing from this years budget, this announced by the former Chief Secretary to the Treasury.

The average income in Mendip is around £17K and average house prices are abour £220K around 12 times average income, with Shelter, the housing charity, says there are 1.8 million nationally on waiting lists and here in Mendip nearly 1400 on the waiting list, these reductions already stated will only increase those waiting lists.
