This is a really interesting article quantifying the amount of housing that is planned for the new garden city, in terms of what we need every year to solve the housing problem. It points out that whilst 13,000 homes sounds significant, and will certainly impact Bicester massively, it is a drop in the sand in the wider context of the UK's housing problem.

I've highlighted the bit at the end as I thought this was an interesting way to look at it- will the public sector getting involved finally push the private sector to up its game?
