THE BBC’s housing briefing estimates that we have built 1.2 million fewer homes than we should have, and the need for more homes is increasing.

The calculations suggest it will take at least 15 years at current building rates to close the gap.

The Labour party’s manifesto of 2019 said that Britain’s housing system is broken, with homelessness up by 50 per cent since 2010 and rough sleeping has doubled, with 120,000 children being without a home called their own.

It also says that home ownership has fallen to a 30-year low.

In their manifesto the Labour party stated that they will build one million new genuinely affordable homes over 10 years and that they would ensure every council every year builds or commissions Labour’s new affordable homes.

So why is newly-elected Warrington North MP, Labour’s Charlotte Nichols, stating that she is totally committed to campaigning to protect Peel Hall, along with the parish and borough council from Satnam developing 1,200 homes ahead of a new public inquiry?

On this subject matter, Warrington north’s Labour party, the parish council and MP are out of line with their party’s manifesto.
