- Develop an overarching housing strategy across all tenures that unites the current, disjointed initiatives
- Determine a long term vision for home ownership and the extent of its support for the nations ambitions in this area
- Offer an effective safety net for homeowners facing unexpected adverse changes in circumstance by reforming Support with Mortgage Interest (SMI) or developing public-private sector partnerships
- Encourage higher rates of home building to improve the balance of supply and demand
