It's a good idea of mine. There are 4800 empty properties in Liverpool alone. Admittedly they are knackered but the brickies job is done eh?
The problem is the area and all it's social problems. That and being the only person on the street, which was partly due to red tape, left the first house up to the mercy of vandals.
All the necessary paperwork should have been in the place and the whole street turned in to a building site at once. I thought they should have created a "London esk" mews set up. A gated community may be?
Maybe I should put this idea forward as an improvement on my original suggestion? @majorincident
