Housing "crisis" idea

Essex of course!
Apparently some 25% of adults live alone. I imagine a significant proportion live in a house (as opposed to a flat). So how about this... a grant from central funds to convert your house into two flats (e.g. a downstairs shower room/toilet/basin. an upstairs kitchen/ette) and planning permission specially relaxed to allow this to happen? When the new flat is sold, repay the grant which would effectively be an interest free loan secured on the "new" flat, the house owner pockets the rest.

Looking at my place, it could be possible.

Would you be prepared to sell half your house, as it were?
