Stopping the slums of the future

Jenny is supporting the Healthy Homes campaign to introduce a set of basic principles for the building of new homes that will stop the building of the slums of the future.

Standards for new homes and places are fragmented, complex and do not guarantee that all new homes provide for residents’ basic human needs, such as access to green space and local services, and clean air. Some homes built through Permitted Development even lack access to natural light, and thousands more have been built in office parks and industrial estates.
