In the last two days we have witnessed the ignition of a significant debate on the pages of Corriere della Sera Milan around the topic of housing policies and the revision of the PGT [Territorial Government Plans] which should be presented by the end of the year.

The discussion focuses around the percentage of subsidized construction of 40% foreseen for new private buildings, with a lowering of the threshold from 10,000 to 5,000 m2, the updating of urbanization charges (which in our opinion are still too low) and the limits of vertical development for construction in some areas.

We believe that public residential provision should be expanded, and that there is a need for a share of public housing in social housing and more permanent rental accommodation at subsidized rent. Social housing, Tancredi himself says, cannot be an instrument that offers market prices because it must address families, students and workers (poor and/or essential).

There is a need to build a new balance in the city, which leans towards the needs of the people and of those who believe that the right to housing must always be guaranteed, even to the detriment of maximizing profits.

So... is this getting serious?
