Few things matter more to people than having a secure home to live in. The lack of affordable housing in the UK is fast becoming one of the major challenges of our generation. The country’s house building record is poor when compared with many other nations; we build fewer homes, and these tend to be smaller and more expensive than elsewhere. House prices have also gone up faster than in any comparable economy.
Led by Nicholas Boys Smith, our More Good Homes programme asks what the planning system should look like in 2030 in order to deliver sufficient numbers of affordable homes, creating a new pathway to prosperity and a new generation of homeowners.
