Council housing is a valuable asset for the country. In Nottingham we know that a decent, secure, affordable home forms the bedrock for a decent quality of life - somewhere healthy to raise your family, or grow old comfortably in your own home. But much more than that; council housing is good for our economy, building good quality homes that contribute towards the stability and vitality of local communities.
This book is part of Nottingham’s contribution to celebrating that anniversary.
2019 marks one hundred years since the passing of the Housing and Town Planning Act 1919, better known as the Addison Act, after Christopher Addison, the Minister who implemented it. The Act delivered Prime Minister David Lloyd George’s pledge that the nation would have 'Homes fit for heroes'.
