UK CITIZENS erroneously believe that the country is being concreted over, survey evidence from SmartNewHomes revealed yesterday.

Fifty-three per cent of respondents in a poll said they believed the UK was being concreted over, while some three quarters overestimated the proportion of English land that’s been developed.

“Sixty per cent of new home developments are built on brownfield sites,” said SmartNewHomes boss Steven Lees, “It is a shame that…the public remains blinded.”
