A message from your Mayor: James Palmer

I’m a passionate advocate for home ownership, and it is simply not right that so many hardworking people are locked out of the property market through high prices and unattainable mortgages. We want to address the affordability of housing, particularly for key workers, first time buyers and those in employment who cannot access the home ownership market without family or other third-party support.
