About this item

The author argues that a large crisis in new housing supply exists in England (particularly in London and the South East) and that the policy proposals of the government and commentators are too minor or will worsen the situation. He contends that the fundamental deficiencies of the system are not understood and that only radical policy changes can stabilize the housing market and increase the number of new homes, showing that short-term measures cannot correct this systemic problem. He describes the policies of the new Conservative government, focusing on the Housing and Planning Act 2016; academic critiques of the policy direction; the failures of successive governments since 1979, as well as their ideological continuities; key policy areas for housing, including the overall housing supply deficit, the shortage of affordable housing for lower and middle-income households, the type and quality of the new homes being built, the use of the existing housing stock, and the failures of the current planning system; and a reform program, with discussion of the principles for housing supply policies and specific policy reforms in terms of investment policy, planning, and land policy and taxation.
