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.
