Victoria Prentis: helping our housing problems
I wanted to call this debate “Kevin McCloud changed my life and I want him to change yours, too”, but I was told that was not entirely orderly. What I do want to impress upon the House is that self-building produces houses that are better quality, cheaper and greener.
The UK has one of the lowest self and custom build sectors in the developed world, running at about 8% of the market. Self Build is a real way to solve our housing problems, build communities, and ensure good quality and ecologically sound architecture.
