International review of land supply and planning systems

The JRF Housing Market Taskforce has identified land supply as a key reason contributing to housing market volatility and problems of housing affordability in the UK. This desk based research aims to assess which policy approaches to land supply and land markets are most likely to work in the English context.

Following a preliminary scoping review of relevant literature, specific case studies will be selected from Europe and the USA and Australia/NZ to explore mechanisms for bringing forward land for housing development. Country experts will be recruited to act as advisors to the research. The emerging findings will be presented to a round table of stakeholders including developers, planners and academics, to ‘road test’ selected approaches in terms of their desirability and transferability to the UK. The outputs will be a short report and a JRF ‘Findings’ and a short series of briefings/blogs bringing out the relationship between specific policy initiatives and the changing policy and economic environment in the UK.
