Understanding Housing Policy (Hardcover) (Brian Lund)
about this item
What are the major housing problems in contemporary Britain, and how effective are the policies designed to tackle them? Since the second edition of Understanding Housing Policy was published in 2011, political and financial circumstances have transformed the answers to these questions. In this fully updated third edition, Brian Lund both explores how these policies developed and were implemented under the UK Coalition Government and looks ahead to the possible revisions under the new Conservative Government. Integrating the previous edition with new discussions of such subjects as the austerity agenda following the credit crunch, the impact of the Coalition Government’s housing policies, and new policy ideas, Lund offers keen insight into the pervasive impact of need, demand, and supply as applied to the housing market and austerity policies.
