Mechanisms to increase housing supply in England

The Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research recently completed an international review of land supply and planning systems, published by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation March 2013. The review identified measures taken successfully in other countries to bring land forward for housing. However, it showed that in England many of these mechanisms are already available or in place in some form. The key issue is therefore why are they not used more widely or more effectively? This new research, funded by the RICS, builds on this review to identify the relevant comparable instruments in England and what the barriers and constraints are on using these mechanisms more successfully.

Mechanisms to increase housing land supply in England and Wales

A recent review conducted by CCHPR identified measures taken successfully in other countries to bring land forward for housing (Monk et al, 2013). However, it showed that in England and Wales many of these mechanisms are already available or in place in some form. This new research funded by the RICS builds on the review to identify case study examples where the mechanisms have been used successfully.
