Hounslow Conservatives Announce Manifesto Pledges on Tax & Finance

Lampton 360 Development plans to build 844 new homes. Although a start is soon to be made on one site it has so far failed to lay a single brick. Financial viability means that less a quarter of the planned units being built on council owned land will be made available as social housing.
