Evaluate the legacy of the two world wars on the provision of ‘decent housing’ during the twentieth century.
-descripe the traumatic impact of the world war 1: the reason begin council housing. Local Authority give duty to build because the shortage problem. Kanet control and private landlord exploit since economic position just not there.(1950 housing act)
-Legacy ww1: envole a large scale state in central housing first time. till the market got back on its feet. by default. ‘council housing’ build for low-income family.
-1920-30s. Local Autority establish feacture housing system, include’slum clearence’ (1930 housing act)
-describe the impact of world world 2. more much intense cersion of ww1. housing crisis huge shortage problem, half million destroy. 6 year nothing was built. also the rapid growth household numbers, some marriage problem make the whole fragmentation of household. so more household grows and more demand need.
-so the labour party 1945 win election. radical Baven become minister for housing programme. and make council house take the lead to deal with the problem. although it need 25 year to catch up dwellings and households.
-home owning in 1950s become the leader of providing to figure out the shortage problem. end of 50s, slum clearence begins again. only local authority deal. state manage the programme.
-in the mid1970s state housing provision was drastically scaled down and attention focused on urban renewal. the conservatives under thatcher and new labour under blair both pursued a policy of dismantling council housing as a principal housing form. the private sector reach the nadir of its fortune.
-home owning society create a independently rented sector. pay attention to the low demand the the crisis of regional imbalances in the housing market.
-therefore whole decade missing because of war and massive impact on good quality of housing.
