What we need is an imaginative approach by the government. As president of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH) and as a founding member of the Pro Housing Alliance, I believe the government needs to put housing at the top of the public health agenda. It needs to introduce changes to land taxation to help finance regeneration and urban renewal, it needs to provide 500,000 green and affordable homes per year for the next seven years - and it needs to rescind the changes to housing benefit rules. © 2011 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.
