How can we enable people in Britain to live in better places?

Dealing with second homes

Second (and more) homes contribute to the housing shortage and to house price inflation. But politicians don't seem too interested - perhaps because many of them have second homes! This idea is to develop a GIS by combining OS and LR data to identify second homes, map them and present an independent report on their effect on the housing market and the potential for freeing up this resource for people who need houses.
