There is so much talking going on about the housing crisis, speeches from the Prime Minister, to protests in local communities. However, all this talking won't solve anything.
How do we solve this problem?
We build, and we build a lot of quality affordable housing.
It is that simple. No, if's, no but's.
Build up, build out, build on the underutilised land, build on top of shops and office space. There is no limit to the solutions; it is all in the execution now. And the execution should not be temporary. We do not need a short-term solution; we need something where people can happily spend their lives in a quality home.
This city is so incredible and has so much potential, but if less and less people can make it home, then it won't remain as vibrant, productive and incredible as it is.
Let us build!
