More houses requires more hospitals and school places, writes the chair of RLF

School sign

I totally get the headline grabbing “we need to build more houses” but what I am not hearing is how these politicians plan to deal with the consequential increases in requirements for new schools, doctors surgeries, hospitals and a range of other infrastructure needs that directly relate to building more houses.

So, how about some joined-up thinking by the decision makers in this regard, sooner rather than later?
