Comment - Conservative Party Conference Starter Homes

Nigel Palmer, managing director for Linden Homes South West, commented: “It’s encouraging to hear the Government's continued commitment to initiatives that will help to make homes more affordable for people across the UK. Linden Homes supports the principle of the Starter Homes initiative and we welcome the Government’s intention to support first-time buyers. Starter Homes will complement other schemes the Government has introduced, such as Help to Buy. The main barrier for aspirational homebuyers is financial constraint and schemes such as these are infinitely key in enabling them to get onto the housing ladder.

“We welcome the Prime Minister’s announcement and look forward to seeing more detail unfold regarding the Government’s plans to assist the house building industry to deliver much needed homes across the country to tackle the chronic housing shortage in the UK.”
