Interesting idea
4 March 2018 | by amazon-39490See all my reviews

In an attempt to use abandoned houses and replace crime with a community Liverpool Council launch a scheme where people can purchase a house for £1 in return for renovating the house and living in it for 5 years before it can be sold. An interesting idea in the midst of a housing crisis and although not without issues this scheme seems to have been a modest success. Interesting series.
