The Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research has learnt with great sadness of the death of Alan Holmans. Alan had a long and distinguished relationship with CCHPR. He will be greatly missed. An appreciation will follow.
Researchers from the CCHPR were commissioned by the UK Government’s Better Regulation Delivery Office to carry out a project examining attitudes to data sharing amongst regulators. The final report, now published, contains a number of organisational, legal and technical recommendations.
This annual compilation of housing statistics and commentary has just been published with two important contributions co-authored by Peter Williams, one on welfare reform and housing, the other on housing’s impact on inequality.
The Investment Property Forum (IPF) commissioned CCHPR to investigate whether institutional investors could be attracted to expand the social housing sector in the UK. The final report was published in February 2015 on the IPF website.
CCHPR has examined the evidence for the assertion that some locations have much higher levels of house building than others. Here we present some basic data. CHHPR intends to carry out further work to explore the reasons for the variations.
