It looks at a range of policy measures such as New Towns, bringing empty homes back into use, self build and custom build, the role of taxation in promoting housing supply and affordability, different models of delivering affordable housing and how to increase overall housing production. It starts with a policy and practice overview and will produce an Interim Report in time to encourage discussion and debate at the party political conferences. It will include consideration of regional and devolved government and conclude with recommendations.
Promoting policy change to boost the supply of affordable housing
