Affordable Housing: Construction
Lords
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the New Civic Housebuilding model, developed by Shelter, in order to address the supply of affordable housing in Britain today.
Answered on: 14 March 2017

The Government welcomes the report from Shelter as a helpful contribution to the housing debate. The Government agrees with the assertion that the current business model for delivering homes cannot address the housing shortage alone.

That is why we are determined to diversify the housing market, with the White Paper setting out measures to support smaller and medium sized builders, boost productivity and innovation by encouraging modern methods of construction, and attract investors into the development of homes for rent as well as for sale.
