Better arguments are the key to building more UK houses

The housing debate can often feel like a lose-lose argument. On the one hand you have the NIMBYs (Not In My Backyard), who support building more houses in principal – just not near where they live. They are a loud bunch, regular participants in the local planning process and enthusiastic correspondents with their local councillors and MPs. Conservatives fear foisting more homes upon them in case they lose them as voters.
