Additional housing supply: implications for sustainable communities

This is part of DCLG’s (then ODPM) response to the Barker Review of Housing Supply’s recommendations that many more dwellings are needed to reduce house price inflation. It draws on the results of a model of house price response to additional supply developed in a parallel project at Reading University.

The aim of the project was to assess the sustainability impacts of building more houses using three growth scenarios and three regional distributions of that growth. Our input was to assess the social and economic impacts which is a very under-researched area but is nevertheless a vital aspect of long term sustainability.
