Half of new homes needed for migrants

David Ramsbotham

Sir,

Back in December 2015 the Department for Communities and Local Government forecast that almost half of all new homes to be built in England over the next five years will be needed to cope with the influx of migrants, with net migration adding 95,000 new households a year while home building targets stand at 200,000 a year. This suggests that 20,000 of the 40,000 new homes to be built in Norwich City, Broadland and South Norfolk Council areas under the Joint Core Strategy will be occupied by migrant families.  Do the people of Norfolk appreciate this and do they realise the impact these extra 50,000 people will have on local culture and the Norfolk way of life?
It is not too late to take action.
A “Leave” vote in the forthcoming referendum would allow us to take control of our borders and stem the tide of new migrants into our country and area.

Yours faithfully,

David Ramsbotham
