Re Housing: Housing_a_Place_to-Live
- LVT being a whole-systems issue should be separate from immediate concerns and remedies – put the fire out, then look for the arsonist 🙂
- Define “affordable”.
- Differentiate between planners/developers and builders.
- Strategies- social housing (not for profit).
