The Homes for Heroes campaign is calling for national and local government and private investors to help fund 100,000 new homes for key workers in the UK post-pandemic. Should the heroic efforts of key workers battling coronavirus be rewarded with a national programme of homebuilding that continues long-term? How will MMC techniques of building help to create high-quality, eco-friendly homes at speed? What can the public and private sector do together to take advantage of this unique opportunity? How would the mass creation of key worker housing in factories stimulate other areas of the economy?
