Included in the 300,000 homes figure would be industrial lands in places like the East Wall/ South Docklands etc.
It is definitely the way to go, on the train yesterday looking at Broombridge Station it occured to me that a lot of the smaller scale industrialestates built in the 1960/70’s would be ideal for medium density residential development.
Buildings that have outlived their specification and often are unlettable in their present use are occupying some of the most strategic sites at suburban locations.
