Seaton housing developments in the last decade: two huge retirement blocks, two blocks of flats, nine housing developments – at least 300 flats and houses in all.

Seaton housing developments in the last decade: two huge retirement blocks, two blocks of flats, nine housing developments - at least 300 flats and houses in all. None of them can be considered a starter home or affordable home, and no social housing.

The country's number one priority is affordable housing, so what a dismal record of achievement for our local councils. They have failed our young people, a whole generation.

Does anyone know how this complaint can be taken further, to stop this discrimination? It is an absolute scandal.
