    Is this a better idea for social housing?

    The concept is principally very similar to something I've seen within the last couple of years with small studio flats made from adapted 20ft shipping containers which can be stacked.

    I think they cost around £15k each.

    To me, it makes perfect sense - especially when the LHA is £884 for a single person unit and councils are paying far more than that for temporary accommodation.

    Yes but childless singletons/couples do not get TA - they get referred to PRS

    And the groups you refer to could be perfectly suited to trailer homes/converted shipping containers.

    Not a bad concept,  perhaps substitute trailers for Prefab houses ?

    This is a flash example of a shipping container:

    It's good to re-use an asset like this as housing. Would be interesting to see the container city (in the East End iirc?) and how it's getting on.

    Just seen that 34 units have been created in Hanwell for the homeless. Would be very interesting to know the £figure involved. It's run by the council as well!
