Zaheer's average in Pak - 58+, his average outside Pak 36. Now that makes him less than a great. A difference of > 20. A home & flat track bully, if there ever was one.
After a frenetic 32 days – jam-packed with four Test matches – England and Pakistan’s contest ends with honours even, the Investec Series all square at 2-2. In a closely fought battle, the tourists seemed to save their best for the capital, routing England on both sides of London, but comfortably outplayed as soon as the action moved anywhere north of the Watford Gap.
Then there is Misbah, a player who was pretty much the Pakistan Cricket Board’s last choice to be captain, who has led the team to so many firsts, mosts and onlys. Misbah, who won more Tests than any other Pakistan captain. Misbah, who never lost a home series. Misbah, who became the only captain in history whose team whitewashed England and Australia. Misbah yoked himself so tightly to the needs of the team his career seemed to became one long exercise in self-abnegation. He batted so slow they called him “Tuk Tuk” but who also scored, one carefree day, the fastest 50 in Test cricket and tied Viv Richards’ record for the fastest ton.
This man was a genius, and would have been the king of T20 cricket; easily the most sought after signing for any T20 league. Akram began his career during a time when speed guns were not the norm, but was said to be as fast as anyone. Later, he would cut down his pace, possibly to endure the level of non-stop limited overs cricket Pakistan was playing, and made up for it with deadly accuracy and guile. As a fast bowler who could swing it both ways and bowl lethal bouncers and yorkers at will, that too off a short run up, Akram would have been a diamond in T20 cricket. Few batsmen ever had the better of Akram, and his miserly economy rate would have been priceless in this format. What’s more, Akram could hit the ball as hard as anyone, which is an important characteristic for a late order T20 batsman.

“Sarfaraz has his own views but I don’t think he said they were scared directly. To me it is simple, everyone knows the reasons for India not playing against Pakistan. It is all political and has nothing to do with cricket,” Misbah said during the ICC Champions Trophy unveiling at the national stadium here.
At the age of 19, Aslam boasts of an excellent average of 49.50 in A-list cricket, better than most of the batsmen in the current squad. Aslam averaged 100-plus in his last ODI tournament, which was held two months prior to the World Cup. Aslam also scored a century in the finals against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s domestic team, which had star bowlers like Junaid Khan and Yasir Shah.
As far as i am at pains after not seeing M Yousuf in the line-up, I have to say compare the bastmen selected. We will leave Anwar and Hanif cuz they are openers. Zaheer Abbas - Asian Bradman, cant say anything more than that. Miandad - The most reliable batsman we have ever had. Inzi - Destructive to devastating effect. Only behind Miandad in terms of test runs.
In Zaheer Abbas, Javed Miandad and Inzamam-ul-Haq, you've picked three batsmen who all had terrible records against the best teams of their era. It shows a lack of imagination on the part of the jury.
In both tasks he has been magnificently supported by his lieutenant Younus Khan, now Pakistan’s highest-scoring Test batsman, although the two men are very different on and off the pitch. Younus is voluble and extrovert and always seems on the move; Misbah is calm and cerebral, measured in speech and motion. They do share an intense patriotism and devotion to their families.
8 Muhammad Rameez Muhammad Rameez has been playing first class cricket for 5 years now and has also represented Pakistan U19 team with great success. He's a 21 year old fast bowler who hails from Rawalpindi. He has taken 164 wickets in his 35 first class games so far at an average of less than 22. In the current season, he has 30 wickets to his name in 6 games. Lately, he has improved his batting a lot too, averaging 31 with the bat in the current season. I like every Talent of Pakistan V 1 Comment
Asad Ali is just 23 years old but has a 6 year experience in first class cricket. He made his first class debut 2 days after his 17th birthday. He has played 66 first class matches so far taking 294 wickets averaging 23. In his List A career, he has taken 69 wickets in 37 games at an average of 20. In the current season, he's representing SNGPL and has taken 41 wickets so far in 8 games averaging below 20.
Perhaps one of the classiest openers Pakistan has ever produced, this wristy left-hander from Karachi could score at the rate of knots, and was playing T20 style cricket long before the format became a reality. A wonderful timer of the ball, Anwar was particularly aggressive against spinners and medium pacers, and would have been one of the most successful T20 openers of all time.
you have an image of Saeed Ahmed batting in the first Test against Australia , can you please clarify the name of your staff photographer who took this picture .I am sure Dawn would be having this record . In 1959, Dawn was not published from Lahore , so a photographer must have been detailed to cover this match .

It would be piquant to think that Gover was the ultimate source of the bowling technique which destroyed so many English batsmen in the 1980s and 1990s. However, what Farrakh Khan described and demonstrated to me appeared to be conventional inswing, and this was confirmed by Sarfraz when I spoke to him at the cricket academy he has created at Islamabad.
The Pakistan women's cricket team has a much lower profile than the men's team. For all national women's cricket teams, the female players are paid much less their male counterparts and the women's teams do not receive as much popular support or recognition as the men's team. The women's teams also have a less packed schedule compared to men's teams and play fewer matches. The team played it first match during 1997, when it was on tour of New Zealand and Australia and were invited to the World Cup later that year and in the Women's Asia Cup during 2005 the team came third place. During 2007, the team with face South Africa and later in the year travel to Ireland to play in the Women's World Cup Qualifier. The team also played at the T20 England World Cup, the team finished 6th place, beating Sri Lanka and South Africa in 2009.
The third is Misbah-ul-Haq, and he has a claim to be the greatest. On statistics alone his claim is indisputable: 20 wins in 42 Tests as captain. Imran had 14 wins in 48 Tests, Kardar six in 23.
Just days before legislative elections in May 2013, Khan injured his head and back when he fell from a platform at a campaign rally. He appeared on television from his hospital bed hours later to make a final appeal to voters. The elections produced Tehreek-e-Insaf’s highest totals yet, but the party still won less than half the number of seats won by the Pakistan Muslim League–Nawaz (PML-N), led by Nawaz Sharif.
At that dark hour, there was reason to doubt the survival of Pakistan cricket. That was when Misbah took over. He was not an obvious choice as captain. He had a mixed Test record, and was not even selected for the 2010 Tour, nor the one before in 2006. He was already 36 — ancient for a modern player.
@shoukat please read carefully before commenting. Where did I say Waqar was terrible or not good? my point is that Waqar was never the best. And I am not sure he would have been a good T20 bowler. A good T20 bowler needs guile and variation above all. Waqar was best during death overs when the ball would begin to reverse swing. During a twenty over match, few balls would begin to reverse. The best younis comparison over the past years is lasith malinga. Would you consider malinga to be a legend of the T20 format? The truth is that very few of the people mentioned above would be actual legends in the T20 format. As a nation we have the tendency to over indulge in our ego. Of the people mentioned, only wasim akram, Saeed Anwar, Imran khan, Saqlain Mushtaq could have been legends of this format.
Imran’s greatest spell of reverse swing came against India in the second Test at Karachi in December 1982. Trailing by 283, India were making a fight of their second innings as Sunil Gavaskar and Dilip Vengsarkar had a long second-wicket partnership of 74 which took them to 102 for one on a flat wicket. Imran then returned for his second spell with the ball around 40 overs old. In the next 25 balls he took five wickets for eight runs. The normally impregnable Gavaskar was bowled through the gate. The experienced and accomplished Gundappa Viswanath was bowled shouldering arms to a late-reversing ball he expected to pass outside his off-stump. Imran went on to claim eight for 60, his second-best performance in a Test innings. Five were bowled and two lbw – a marker of reverse swing. He was watched by his mentor, Sarfraz, by then Pakistan’s third seamer.
At the 1992 World Cup Semi-final, having won the toss, New Zealand chose to bat first and ended with a total of 262 runs. Pakistan batted conservatively yet lost wickets at regular intervals. With the departure of Imran Khan and Saleem Malik shortly thereafter, Pakistan still required 115 runs at a rate of 7.67 runs per over with veteran Javed Miandad being the only known batsman remaining at the crease. A young Inzamam-ul-Haq, who had just turned 22 and was not a well-known player at the time, burst onto the international stage with a match-winning 60 off 37 balls. Once Inzamam got out, Pakistan required 36 runs from 30 balls, which wicketkeeper Moin Khan ended with a towering six over long off, followed by the winning boundary to midwicket. The match is seen as the emergence of Inzamam onto the international stage.
Your lack of cricketing knowledge and unsubstantiated support for Yousaf is evident from the fact that you compare players of different era. The lower quality of cricket these days adds 10-15 runs automatically to batsmen. When Majid and Zaheer were playing at their peak, they would get a 3-test series in a year. Even then they proved to be world class in English county and Australian Sheffield Shield (Majid being the only Pakistani who played in it). Majid was the only batsman to have scored over 2000 in 1972 and Zaheer was the only batsman who scored over 2500 runs in 1976, in English summer. Check your facts, Zaheer scored two double hundreds in England and close to 300 runs in Australia against Lillee. You can only compare players of different era only subjectively and if you do that Yousaf is not in the same class. Players like Yousaf are just good commodity batsmen who were lucky to score 1000s of runs in mediocre cricket to compile huge averages.
For all their records, their achievements are not of the kind best expressed in numbers or on lists. Between them they carried Pakistan through the hardest, darkest years and in doing so they did not just serve their country but the sport and all of us who love it.
Regarding the allegations by Rashid Latif, when the Pakistan team left for New Zealand and I was injured, there was no doctor at the national cricket academy so I went to Abbottabad to see the physio who worked for my regional team and that was with the full permission of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Intikhab Alam gave me permission to go to Abbottabad.

I'd have also picked the same team, but with Wasim Bari as the wicketkeeper, Pakistan's best ever. But with Rashid Latif's batting ability I can understand the reason of his selection. Shame then that he didn't play that many matches for Pakistan. Unfortunately, unlike India and Sri Lanka, none of our batsmen bowl part time spin, so we only have one spinner. I can therefore see the temptation to select Mushtaq Mohammed or Intikhab Alam as the all rounder and Imran as a specialist bowler. That way we could have strengthened the batting and had a second spin option. Anyway with Wasim, Waqar and Fazal as the three fast bowlers and Qadir as the spinner, there is less pressure on Imran as a bowler, so he can concentrate on his batting, a luxury he did not always have in his playing days. Unfortunately reading some of the comments, it does appear a lot of the readers are quite young and do not appreciate the greats of yesteryear. Numbers are not everything, so don't just look at averages.

Muhammad Rameez has been playing first class cricket for 5 years now and has also represented Pakistan U19 team with great success. He's a 21 year old fast bowler who hails from Rawalpindi. He has taken 164 wickets in his 35 first class games so far at an average of less than 22. In the current season, he has 30 wickets to his name in 6 games. Lately, he has improved his batting a lot too, averaging 31 with the bat in the current season.
For years, he kept the secret of reverse swing from everyone except his old opening partner in Pakistan, Saleem Mir. (It did not help Saleem Mir very much; in eight first-class matches he took just eight wickets at an average over 40. Reverse swing has always required high-quality bowling, which is why Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis stood far higher than other exponents.) The technique was not much use to Sarfraz in England, where the ball did not get as rough as in Pakistan, and he usually employed conventional swing there. His Northamptonshire team-mate and future captain, Mushtaq Mohammad, was aware of reverse swing but rarely saw it and had no idea how it was achieved.
In spite of Tehreek-e-Insaf’s struggles in elections, Khan’s populist postitions found support, especially among young people. He continued his criticism of corruption and economic inequality in Pakistan and opposed the Pakistani government’s cooperation with the United States in fighting militants near the Afghan border. He also launched broadsides against Pakistan’s political and economic elites, whom he accused of being westernized and out of touch with Pakistan’s religious and cultural norms.

A film crew is a group of people hired by a film company, employed during the "production" or "photography" phase, for the purpose of producing a film or motion picture. Crew is distinguished from cast, who are the actors who appear in front of the camera or provide voices for characters in the film. The crew interacts with but is also distinct from the production staff, consisting of producers, managers, company representatives, their assistants, and those whose primary responsibility falls in pre-production or post-production phases, such as screenwriters and film editors. Communication between production and crew generally passes through the director and his/her staff of assistants. Medium-to-large crews are generally divided into departments with well-defined hierarchies and standards for interaction and cooperation between the departments. Other than acting, the crew handles everything in the photography phase: props and costumes, shooting, sound, electrics (i.e., lights), sets, and production special effects. Caterers (known in the film industry as "craft services") are usually not considered part of the crew.
The "credits," or "end credits," is a list that gives credit to the people involved in the production of a film. Films from before the 1970s usually start a film with credits, often ending with only a title card, saying "The End" or some equivalent, often an equivalent that depends on the language of the production. From then onward, a film's credits usually appear at the end of most films. However, films with credits that end a film often repeat some credits at or near the start of a film and therefore appear twice, such as that film's acting leads, while less frequently some appearing near or at the beginning only appear there, not at the end, which often happens to the director's credit. The credits appearing at or near the beginning of a film are usually called "titles" or "beginning titles." A post-credits scene is a scene shown after the end of the credits. Ferris Bueller's Day Off has a post-credit scene in which Ferris tells the audience that the film is over and they should go home.
Preceding film in origin by thousands of years, early plays and dances had elements common to film: scripts, sets, costumes, production, direction, actors, audiences, storyboards, and scores. Much terminology later used in film theory and criticism apply, such as mise en scène (roughly, the entire visual picture at any one time). Owing to the lack of any technology for doing so, the moving images and sounds could not be recorded for replaying as with film.

This production cycle usually takes three years. The first year is taken up with development. The second year comprises preproduction and production. The third year, post-production and distribution. The bigger the production, the more resources it takes, and the more important financing becomes; most feature films are artistic works from the creators' perspective (e.g., film director, cinematographer, screenwriter) and for-profit business entities for the production companies.
The impact of a reviewer on a given film's box office performance is a matter of debate. Some observers claim that movie marketing in the 2000s is so intense, well-coordinated and well financed that reviewers cannot prevent a poorly written or filmed blockbuster from attaining market success. However, the cataclysmic failure of some heavily promoted films which were harshly reviewed, as well as the unexpected success of critically praised independent films indicates that extreme critical reactions can have considerable influence. Other observers note that positive film reviews have been shown to spark interest in little-known films. Conversely, there have been several films in which film companies have so little confidence that they refuse to give reviewers an advanced viewing to avoid widespread panning of the film. However, this usually backfires, as reviewers are wise to the tactic and warn the public that the film may not be worth seeing and the films often do poorly as a result. Journalist film critics are sometimes called film reviewers. Critics who take a more academic approach to films, through publishing in film journals and writing books about films using film theory or film studies approaches, study how film and filming techniques work, and what effect they have on people. Rather than having their reviews published in newspapers or appearing on television, their articles are published in scholarly journals or up-market magazines. They also tend to be affiliated with colleges or universities as professors or instructors.
Profit is a key force in the industry, due to the costly and risky nature of filmmaking; many films have large cost overruns, an example being Kevin Costner's Waterworld. Yet many filmmakers strive to create works of lasting social significance. The Academy Awards (also known as "the Oscars") are the most prominent film awards in the United States, providing recognition each year to films, based on their artistic merits. There is also a large industry for educational and instructional films made in lieu of or in addition to lectures and texts. Revenue in the industry is sometimes volatile due to the reliance on blockbuster films released in movie theaters. The rise of alternative home entertainment has raised questions about the future of the cinema industry, and Hollywood employment has become less reliable, particularly for medium and low-budget films.
The necessary steps for almost any film can be boiled down to conception, planning, execution, revision, and distribution. The more involved the production, the more significant each of the steps becomes. In a typical production cycle of a Hollywood-style film, these main stages are defined as:
A "film goer," "movie goer," or "film buff" is a person who likes or often attends films and movies, and any of these, though more often the latter, could also see oneself as a student to films and movies or the filmic process. Intense interest in films, film theory, and film criticism, is known as cinephilia, or cinéaste in French.
Film is used for a range of goals, including education and propaganda. When the purpose is primarily educational, a film is called an "educational film". Examples are recordings of academic lectures and experiments, or a film based on a classic novel. Film may be propaganda, in whole or in part, such as the films made by Leni Riefenstahl in Nazi Germany, US war film trailers during World War II, or artistic films made under Stalin by Eisenstein. They may also be works of political protest, as in the films of Wajda, or more subtly, the films of Andrei Tarkovsky. The same film may be considered educational by some, and propaganda by others as the categorization of a film can be subjective.

Trailers or previews are advertisements for films that will be shown in 1 to 3 months at a cinema. Back in the early days of cinema, with theaters that had only one or two screens, only certain trailers were shown for the films that were going to be shown there. Later, when theaters added more screens or new theaters were built with a lot of screens, all different trailers were shown even if they weren't going to play that film in that theater. Film studios realized that the more trailers that were shown (even if it wasn't going to be shown in that particular theater) the more patrons would go to a different theater to see the film when it came out. The term "trailer" comes from their having originally been shown at the end of a film program. That practice did not last long because patrons tended to leave the theater after the films ended, but the name has stuck. Trailers are now shown before the film (or the "A film" in a double feature program) begins. Film trailers are also common on DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, as well as on the Internet and mobile devices. Trailers are created to be engaging and interesting for viewers. As a result, in the Internet era, viewers often seek out trailers to watch them. Of the ten billion videos watched online annually in 2008, film trailers ranked third, after news and user-created videos. Teasers are a much shorter preview or advertisement that lasts only 10 to 30 seconds. Teasers are used to get patrons excited about a film coming out in the next six to twelve months. Teasers may be produced even before the film production is completed.
In U.S. usage, one talks of a "screening" or "projection" of a movie or video on a screen at a public or private "theater." In British English, a "film showing" happens at a cinema (never a "theatre", which is a different medium and place altogether). A cinema usually refers to an arena designed specifically to exhibit films, where the screen is affixed to a wall, while a theater usually refers to a place where live, non-recorded action or combination thereof occurs from a podium or other type of stage, including the amphitheater. Theaters can still screen movies in them, though the theater would be retrofitted to do so. One might propose "going to the cinema" when referring to the activity, or sometimes "to the pictures" in British English, whereas the U.S. expression is usually "going to the movies." A cinema usually shows a mass-marketed movie using a front-projection screen process with either a film projector or, more recently, with a digital projector. But, cinemas may also show theatrical movies from their home video transfers that include Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and videocassette when they possess sufficient projection quality or based upon need, such as movies that exist only in their transferred state, which may be due to the loss or deterioration of the film master and prints from which the movie originally existed. Due to the advent of digital film production and distribution, physical film might be absent entirely. A "double feature" is a screening of two independently marketed, stand-alone feature films. A "viewing" is a watching of a film. "Sales" and "at the box office" refer to tickets sold at a theater, or more currently, rights sold for individual showings. A "release" is the distribution and often simultaneous screening of a film. A "preview" is a screening in advance of the main release.
As a medium, film is not limited to motion pictures, since the technology developed as the basis for photography. It can be used to present a progressive sequence of still images in the form of a slideshow. Film has also been incorporated into multimedia presentations and often has importance as primary historical documentation. However, historic films have problems in terms of preservation and storage, and the motion picture industry is exploring many alternatives. Most films on cellulose nitrate base have been copied onto modern safety films. Some studios save color films through the use of separation masters: three B&W negatives each exposed through red, green, or blue filters (essentially a reverse of the Technicolor process). Digital methods have also been used to restore films, although their continued obsolescence cycle makes them (as of 2006) a poor choice for long-term preservation. Film preservation of decaying film stock is a matter of concern to both film historians and archivists and to companies interested in preserving their existing products in order to make them available to future generations (and thereby increase revenue). Preservation is generally a higher concern for nitrate and single-strip color films, due to their high decay rates; black-and-white films on safety bases and color films preserved on Technicolor imbibition prints tend to keep up much better, assuming proper handling and storage.

Reason for why you should insurance
Think about it for a moment. What is your more valuable resource? Is it the money that you have created or the invaluables you own? If your answer is one from the two options above then, you are able just have got it all wrong. Speak on to know why Health Insurance is so vital for all of us.
So do we really need it?
Let's face it, we all appraise our worldly possessions. Our mansions, our swanky autoes, and all the reverie paraphernalia that adorn them. The one thing they all share in common apart from vaunting our self-esteem is Insurance. We keep the things that we may acquire many a times over the course of our earthly macrocosm but repay scant regard to safeguarding the very thing that makes all this possible. Our health. How then can we render not to have Health Insurance?
Imagine the horror of not having a seem person and spirit. Routine acts that we take for conceded could become impossible. To involve difficulties is if you are the only breadwinner of the family. If you have children or dependents who look to "youve got to" gave meat on the table. The concepts you do without batting an eyelid may now seem a remote fantasy. Come Health Insurance to our save. No longer do you have to live with the upset and the uncertainty that an lamentable coincidence may make. It takes away that fiscal loading and rehabilitates your peace of mind.
n 2015, England's local authorities built fewer than 3,000 brand-new homes, just a small fraction of the estimated 250,000 brand-new homes necessity every year to meet demand. But one council has begun construct again in work, in what some see as a simulate for tackling the casing crisis.
On the outskirts of Sheffield, hundreds of brand-new homes are springing up, built by the council to seat touchstones that have all but disappeared in the private sector. New occupants- the majority of members are 25-35 year olds- indicated that they are impressed by the designs and spaciousness, and experience their close proximity to the city.
But this is not a return to the age of 1950 s and 1960 s assembly construct. What Sheffield Residence Company( SHC) is doing is partnering with contractors to build low-priced homes for first-time buyers and categories alongside houses and flats to lease at affordable prices, and with renters better protected.
People had now been moved into homes at Cutler's View, and Brearley Springs and Brearley Forge, worded after Harry Brearley, the inventor of stainless steel. Of 325 ended homes, 237 have been sold in so far. The semi-detached homes- all with plots- are selling from PS99, 995 for a two-bed, PS152, 00 for a three-bed and just over PS200, 000 for a four-bed, with 88 of them for inexpensive rent or shared ownership. There are plans for 24 apartments.
Affordable rent is based on 80% of market value- for example, a three-bedroom semi-detached mansion with drive and gigantic back garden-variety is around PS115 per week. There are no telling fees, and tenants' rights are the same as for traditional assembly renters. Allocation is based on casing needs.
Sheffield has managed to do what the private sector, on its own, failed to do: improve low-cost housing in areas that until now have been regarded as ramshackle or run-down.
SHC sprang out of a 2007 strategy by then casing executive Yvette Cooper, who had a perception of the members of the council partnering with private developers to build on regional assembly property. She worded 14 committees that would open arrangements, improving 35,000 homes. But only three have been successfully established, with Sheffield heading the space on volume.
SHC is a partnership between Sheffield council, housebuilder Keepmoat and Great Places Housing Group, which will manage the inexpensive rented homes. It wants to restore publicly funded casing to areas that flourished during the course of its 1950 s public-sector housing thunder but lost when the steel and coal manufactures went into decline and unemployment rose in the 1970 s and 80 s.
John Clephan, projection chairman at SHC, suggests:" The private sector didn't want to come in because the property importance was low-pitched and because of health risks- nobody is was improving or selling in these areas ."
The council didn't want to go it alone either, because it shortage the expertise to build and sell homes on the free market, and was distrustful of taking on all the risk. The seam crusade suited members of the council because it was able to retain control over the high quality of its casing and the rate at which it was built, suggests Clephan.
Set up in 2011, SHC lost no time and originated improving the subsequent year, with plans to construct 2,300 homes across the city by 2025. Once one batch of homes is finished, the company reviews it with feedback from residents and nips the design of the next batch where needed. It suggests homes are on average 11% greater than those of equivalent expenditure elsewhere in the city.
Shirley Eckhardt, 71, lives in one of the brand-new assembly homes in Cutler's View , not far from the now-demolished assembly dwelling where she lived for 19 years with her late partner. She compensates a discounted rent of PS46. 46 a week.
Her neighbours- their own families with three children and another maiden who live in her own- have bought their properties." Every other mansion is bought - it's a right mingle ," Eckhardt says.

You've got gigantic corridors and extra headroom. Even my pa, he is hard to please, and he couldn't actually fault the members of this house at all, which astounded me ."
Other committees are understood to be closely watching Sheffield's experience. Council building peaked in the late 1960 s at more than 425,000, but collapsed to a low-key of 130 brand-new parts in 2004, according to official data. However, casing associations have crowded some of the gap in recent years, ending 34,890 in 2015: the most since 1995.
Nearly half of 112 committees that took part in the 2015 canvas had either set up or were considering organizing their own casing corporation. Fourteen had already set one up, and 38 were considering it.
Of those, 11 have since made a company or are due to do so, suggests Huub Nieuwstadt, columnist of the survey results. They include Bournemouth, South Northamptonshire and Wolverhampton.
While the cap on assembly borrowing for casing had still not been loosened, other recent changes mean that some local authorities came more headroom. Another rationalization for committees improving is that the Affordable Housing Grant principles were changed in the later years of the Labour authority, permitting committees to get grants to build again.
Let members of the council improve homes again and determine our separated casing businesPatrick Collinson
Read moreCroydon council made Brick by Brick last year- an independent exploitation corporation that plans to build 1,100 homes in the next two years, half of which will be affordable.
Managing director Colm Lacey was of the view that, as an independent corporation, Brick by Brick does not have to go through the public procurement process, but is able to buy property and borrow cheaply from members of the council. Benefits from homes built and sold, as well as income from payments, will go to the council, as 100% stockholder in the company.
Lacey suggests:" We don't have to go out and participate, and don't overpay for property or mezzanine financing, and can yield more inexpensive casing ." Profit-driven private developers tend to" overpay for property and accept they won't have to deliver 50% inexpensive casing ".
Toby Lloyd, head of housing development at homeless people charity Shelter, suggests:" If public property is sold on the free market, the highest bidder is likely to be the one that shapes the most aggressive assumptions about the amount of inexpensive casing they will have to provide. So competitive bidding for property tend to mean that the worst possible scheme will be the one that get built ."
However committees still struggle with the national government self-discipline on regional sovereignty borrowing to build homes because it countings towards public area lack and government debts anatomies. The UK is almost unique in this among major economies, suggests Lloyd. Along with other experts, he imagines the UK should join international standard accounting practice.
The history makersArguably Britain's oldest assembly property is the Grade II rostered Boundary Estate centred around Arnold Circus in eastern London. Influenced by the Artwork and Crafts movement, it was has been established by London County Council in 1890 to change a notorious hovel, and a century eventually is still a sought-after, high-density urban environment of the different types planners remark Britain's municipals urgently need. However, Liverpool can probably lay claim to the first ever council-built consist, with the city busines behind the 1869 creation of St Martin's Cottages, tenement housing that was bulldozed in 1977. However the modern age of mass assembly mansion improving "doesnt really" take off until after the first world war.
* 1919 Lloyd George's Liberal authority elapses the Housing Act, the first law requiring committees to provide casing. It predicted 500,000" Homes for Heroes" within three years, although by the early 1920 s merely 213,000 had been completed.
