New buyers are needed

Why do our local powers that be think we need to build even more houses in Matlock, when the market is flooded with houses for sale.

Where does the idea of a house price hike come from when I am still waiting to sell my property, having reduced it twice?

I also fail to understand the statement ‘affordable housing’ when all the first time buyers have to leave the area.

Maybe the local council could use thier initiative and buy up the cheaper houses and rent them to younger people with a view to buying, but not through their present system.

If we don’t get first-time buyers on the ladder the property market will stagnate.

An injection of the lottery millions might be yet another idea.
