Responding to the 2018 Budget, PlaceShapers chair Sinead Butters said bolder announcements were what was really needed for people to feel an end to austerity.
She said: “This isn't the bold budget we needed to help end the housing crisis, but there are some welcome announcements. Additional funding for Universal Credit is timely but how this is applied is what matters. The £1000 increase in work allowance also recognises that Universal Credit is often an in-work benefit.
“We also welcome the recognition of the importance of SME builders and the role of housing associations via strategic partnerships in solving the housing crisis.
“The Chancellor was keen to commit to an end to austerity but for people to really feel austerity has ended we need investment in homes and communities that have felt left behind.”

Glad to see this response to the vile leaflet and that it's not from the parish council.
