Cambridge Centre for Housing & Planning Research


This work uses secondary data sources to understand who is currently living in social rented housing, their characteristics including their former tenure, entrants and leavers, and who is likely to be living in the social rented sector in the future. It was carried out by Alan Holmans, Sarah Monk, Michael Jones, Diane Lister, Christina Short and Christine Whitehead. The research was funded by DCLG for whom an internal policy related paper was also produced.
