When planning for new housing developments, we must make sure they are built where people actually want to live

By Tim Leunig

Abstract

With a growing population, government is under increasing pressure to build more and more housing developments. Previously used, or brownfield, land often offers an attractive alternative to building on greenfield sites. However, Tim Leunig warns that we must be certain that there is demand for new homes in these areas before we commit to redeveloping them at an often high cost
