PM tells housebuilders to ‘do their duty’

9th March 2018

The Prime Minister has launched a draft policy on planning laws to try to ease Britain's housing shortage - urging homebuilders to build new houses faster to meet demand. Speaking at the National Planning Conference in London, Theresa May scolded property developers - saying their bonus structures "prioritise profit over the construction of affordable homes" and said: "I expect developers to do their duty to Britain and build the homes our country needs. I want to see planning permissions going to people who are actually going to build houses, not just sit on land and watch its value rise
