Baroness Young of Old Scone, guest speaker at the recent AGM of the Gloucestershire Branch of Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE), spoke out about the urgent need for rentable rural housing. Baroness Young said, “Many young people are not able to buy houses at all. We need to provide a renting option all over the County.” Baroness Young, who is Chair of the Woodland Trust, also highlighted the need to provide affordable housing for the older generations too. “Older people, who have lived their whole lives in rural towns and villages, are also being squeezed out. Many have built up life-long friendships and support in their local community but cannot afford to stay. It all comes back to ensuring the right housing in the right places”.
