Inclusive what? The silliness:
More than 500 high-rise developments are in progress across the city of London. For a nation in the grip of a housing crisis, this should be good news. But in reality, this will bring hardly any benefit for many of those seeking a decent home. Almost none of the new homes are reserved for people with no or low incomes and, although house prices in London are falling – particularly at the upper end of the market – construction for wealthy people and international buyers continues.
Building more housing, of whatever cost, size, shape or intended market, means more homes. Thus the price of homes falls.
This is something to complain about?
