Dave Jones If Guernsey's population is growing then social housing should grow in proportion but if social housing is growing due to increased poverty then that must be addressed rather than building proportionally more homes for the new poor. Your comment about turnover makes sense but if demand in the private sector decreases due to expansion of social housing and contraction of the economy, then what? I am realistic about population growth and don't have a problem with that but unless we start to build upwards instead of concreting over green space we will be increasingly urban, is that the intention? I'm not saying we should have skyscrapers but even 3 stories instead of 2 would be more sustainable.
