Have your say

With Larkfleet going for planning permission for 550 homes and looking to increase to 1,000, just how many of those houses will be for people trying to get a first home?

How many starter homes will Larkfleet be building, and by starter homes it’s homes that people on minimum wages can afford with prices starting from, say £80,000 to £100,000, not what Larkfleet think are prices for starter homes.

Nor what is widely reported in national papers that their hero David Cameron thinks the price of a starter home is – £450,000.
