The Guardian: "Minister fails to back call for crackdown on 'rabbit hutch' homes"

Hop to web site

"Communities minister Don Foster on Tuesday failed to back calls for a crackdown on 'rabbit hutch' house building which has seen the size of new homes shrink by almost half since the 1920s.

"In a much-anticipated consultation paper, Foster said he would seek views from industry and others, but dashed campaigners' hopes that the government would come out in favour of new minimum space standards for new homes.

"... The wording was in sharp contrast to outspoken remarks from Foster's departmental boss, communities secretary Eric Pickles, who in March blamed aspects of the previous Labour government's housing policy – which have since been ditched – for condemning families to be "trapped in rabbit hutch homes too small for their needs"."


The Independent:

"'Rabbit hutch' housing
to be curbed by Government"

"The Department for Communities and Local Government
said it was considering forcing architects to design bigger rooms."
