A new report by Vera Kichanova, an urban policy researcher, argues that Britain should legalise microhomes. Housing is the most crucial problem faced by Londoners as supply has not kept pace with demand. Many are now forced to endure long commutes, live in overcrowded shared flats, or leave the city. Instead, micro-housing should be used to expand the choices available to the many Londoners who are open to living in smaller apartments in city centre locations. Local authorities must reverse their opposition to smaller units in order to provide Londoners with more housing choice at affordable levels.
