Weston Mercury: John Penrose’s views on….. housing

John gives The Weston Mercury his views on Weston’s housing needs and his view on how to meet them…

“We need to build lots more new homes so they’re cheaper to rent and to buy, but they’ve got to go in the right places.

“That means in town centres like central Weston, where the extra investment breathes fresh life and energy into our economic rebirth.

“And because it relieves the pressure for development sprawl on green field sites at the edge of rural villages, where many local communities strongly oppose it too.”
