Housing policy experts give evidence to Committee
On Tuesday 20 July at 9.30am, the Built Environment Committee continues hearing evidence on its inquiry into meeting the housing demand in the UK.
- What is the balance of demand for new housing between homes for private ownership, privately rented homes, and social housing? How might social and demographic factors and trends affect demand for different housing tenures?
- Does the figure of 90,000 new homes per year for social rent accurately reflect demand for new social housing? Is the Government introducing the right policy initiatives to ensure homes for social rent are built?
- What can be done to increase the quality, stability and affordability of homes in the private rented sector?
- What is your evaluation of the Government’s initiatives to encourage owner occupancy and improve the affordability of homes, especially for first-time buyers?
