Responding to a report by the CLA that villages are missing out on new affordable homes, Cllr Martin Tett, Housing spokesman for the Local Government Association, said:

“Councils are committed to tackling the housing crisis and delivering the right homes in the right places with the necessary local services and infrastructure.

“Crucially, this includes councils working with their communities to develop and agree Local Plans, setting out their vision for developments where they live.

“As every street, village, town and city is different and will have different levels of need and opportunity for housing growth, it should be for councils working with communities to determine how and where new homes are built.”
