Housing policies and promises in PM conference speech.

Yesterday at the final day of the Conservative Party conference in Manchester,  David Cameron the Prime Minister was welcomed onto the stage with rapturous applause from his party faithfulls and  his team of Ministers including London Mayor Boris Johnson.

The PM opened up by saying that the Conservatives are the “Party for working people, today, tomorrow and always” he highlighted that they have 5 years before them and that  he is only half way through his job as leader, pointing out that this will be his final term as Prime Minister.

He emphasised what Conservative values mean and also voiced his concerns about Labour, he said “Save Britain from the dangers of Labour, build a Greater Britain.

“Greater Britain means more people owning their homes, extending the right-to-buy to Housing Association tenants and continuing the help-to-buy scheme”.

It was announced that Greg Clark had seeled a deal with  Housing Associations so that tenants would be able to buy their homes, 1.3m more people able to become home owners. There will be a shift in housing policy, there would be new rules that would see  planning permission made simpler and easier to process for local councils.

Cameron was clear with his message that ‘People want homes they can own’, he promised a National Crusade to get homes built,  he said he will be working closely with Zak Goldsmith on this, Zak he said “will hopefully be our new London Mayor from next year”.

On housing he finished up by saying “The Conservatives are the party of home ownership”
