This package of measures is an important step towards delivering the homes we need, not only to provide a vital and urgent boost to the economy but to address this country’s housing shortage that’s affecting millions of lives. It’s absolutely crucial for the many families and young people struggling with high housing costs or trying to get on the housing ladder that the Government delivers on its guarantee that these proposals will see more affordable homes built.
– Shelter’s Chief Executive Campbell Robb
Successive governments have failed to get on top of our housing crisis. The government needs to continue thinking innovatively to make sure that this generation and the next aren’t denied the stable and affordable homes they need to get on in life.
