Research Finds England Has Enough Brownfield Land For 1 Million Homes

Britain is currently in the midst of a housing crisis. House prices continue to rise, pushing many would-be homeowners out of the market. Now the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) has released a statement claiming that the solution to the problem could be to rethink the amount so-called “brownfield” land available in England and Wales. The organisation says that there are sufficient brownfield sites across the two countries for the development of more than a million homes.
