"The government seems to think it can get 16,000 homes built for £400m. That's £25,000 each. If houses cost £25,000, there wouldn't be a housing crisis. The target should be to reduce the cost of housing dramatically, because the market has got out of control. It will take a lot more than 16,000 new houses to do that. More planning, less tinkering.
