UK cities, towns and villages ought to be full of decent, well-managed homes, where people are proud to live

The conversation about social housing rarely gets beyond questions of how many more homes we need.

Despite the planning disasters of previous generations, when estates built in the wrong places, lacking the infrastructure necessary for community, ended up being expensively demolished, we scarcely factor in community when thinking about solutions to our housing crisis.

We need a much richer debate, especially in the north, where jobs, transport, social facilities, family networks and much more, all need to be taken into account if we are not to continue the drift of population moving out to already overstretched parts of the country.
