Under-occupation and the new policy framework

This report was commissioned by the Housing Futures Network as part of the Facing the Future work being carried out by Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research. This report looks at under-occupation within social housing and explores in detail the implications of the proposed cuts to housing benefit that will affect under-occupiers of working age from April 2013. It draws on the findings of a survey of under-occupiers, analysis of national level data on the implications of the reforms and also on focus group discussions held in the autumn of 2011.
