CCHPR provided the research support for the Lloyds Banking Group Commission on housing. The Commission’s Report was published on January 28th 2015. This was marked by an event at the House of Commons with speeches by CCHPR Director Michael Oxley, Stephen Noakes, Managing Director, Retail Customer Products, Lloyds Banking Group, Shadow Housing Minister Emma Reynolds and the Co-chairs of the Commission Mark Prisk MP and Nick Raynsford MP, two former Housing Ministers from different political backgrounds. The Housing Minister, Brandon Lewis also welcomed the report.
The Report calls for a progressively rising target for national house-building which will deliver 2 million to 2.5 million homes by 2025 and argues for cross party support for a long-term approach, together with consistency in policy, and a commitment to both quality and quantity. The report sets out a roadmap towards the sustained supply of good quality new homes.
