The Communities and Local Government (CLG) examines the role of the Homes and Communities Agency in increasing housing supply.

Monday 6 February 2017, Thatcher Room, Portcullis House


At 4pm

  • Sir Edward Lister, Chairman, Homes and Communities Agency
  • Gordon More, Chief Investment Officer, Homes and Communities Agency
  • Ian Piper, Head of Land, Homes and Communities Agency

At 5pm

  • Paul Smee, Director General, Council of Mortgage Lenders
  • Mark Jones, Acting Development Director, NHBC
  • Samantha Fernley, BOPAS

Purpose of the session

The session examines the role of the HCA in increasing housing supply and whether it is doing enough to support customer builds and self-builders; if there is enough brownfield land to build the homes the country needs.

Quality assurance of new build homes and modern methods of construction, as well as how easy it is for self-build and custom-build owners to get funding during the planning and building process and for subsequent purchasers to get a mortgage, will also be examined.
