The Government should support small and medium builders and ensure local authorities have the tools they need to make an effective contribution to solving the housing crisis, the Committee adds.

The report notes that the eight largest firms build more than half of all new homes and calls for a more competitive market, with a large number of companies of different sizes. The Committee recommends improving access to land and finance for smaller builders and says Government should reduce the risk for builders by preparing sites for development by providing infrastructure and planning permissions.
