Bill: Housing Guaranteement Proposal
Votes: This is an ordinary bill. It requires more yes votes than no votes. This bill will not pass any sooner than the deadline.
Voting deadline: December 2300
|In order to guarantee that all peoples requiring housing are able to gain property the Government will provide sponsored housing to low income families, the elderly (should they require such), and individuals who are unable to purchase properities by Private means.|
Those peoples living within these homes will be required to pay a limited contribution toward upkeep through rent, but costs will be maintained to such a position as to keep them below the cost of Private Rental Accommodation.
Peoples will be allowed to continue to live in these houses until such time as they can either:
a) Afford to purchase said property outright (this money will then be used to construct new Public Housing);
b) Able to move to Private Rental Accommodation, without serious economic harm;
c) Able to purchase Private Accommodation.
Housing production will be split between three varieties:
- 1/4 of housing will be single bedroom "starter" homes,
- 1/2 of housing will be two bedroom small family homes,
- 1/4 of housing will be three bedroom large family homes.
Local Councils will be able to modify the above requirements to better provide for the requirements of their local constituents.
All other housing is permitted to be owned and maintained by the individual so long as said housing does not break local or national planning directives.
Old value:: The state owns and maintains all housing.
Current: All housing is private but rent is subsidised for low-income households.
Proposed: The state provides public housing to low-income families.
