Houses cost money. The price of bricks and mortar, plumbing, roofing, electrics etc is what it is, and wages are rising faster than prices thanks to government policy. The only way therefore to make housing more affordable is to build on cheaper plots of land. Why do some people think they have a right to subsidised housing and have someone else (the taxpayer) pick up the bill?
But why should local authorities not be given the right to CPO land with expired planning permission for the original land value? That would provide a source of cheap building land.
