The debate about England's housing crisis often focussed on London and the South East. That's understandable - it's the part of the country where house prices are highest.
That doesn't mean we don't need to build new homes in the North - we do. "Cheaper than London" isn't the same thing as "affordable" - and there a range of other problems caused by the lack of new homes too.
We need to recognise that the housing challenge is different in different parts of the country - and that it needs different solutions as a result.
Our managing director, Paul Smith, explains what those differences are and why they are so important in his latest piece for Housing Today.
