Cambridge Centre for Housing & Planning Research


This project was commissioned by East 7, a group of housing associations in the East of England, to inform their own strategy and policy development and to assist East 7 members in engaging in the policy debate with ministers and other opinion formers.

Phase 1 of the project provided a scene setting analysis of the contemporaneous (2012) situation and trends in each of the 47 housing authorities in the Eastern region. Phase 2 explored the implications of an agreed range of possible scenarios for the future.
