Meeting the UK’s housing demand


This inquiry will investigate the demand for new housing in the UK and how barriers to meeting this demand can be overcome.

It will consider the key factors shaping the type, tenure and quality of housing needed in the UK. The inquiry will also examine a range of challenges to meeting that demand including skills shortages in the construction industry and some specific aspects of the planning system. The Committee will report by the end of the year and make recommendations to the Government.

The inquiry is accepting written submissions until 10 September 2021. Please see the call for evidence.
