Housing White Paper

07 Feb 2017

DCLG’s Housing White Paper has been published; it includes a series of consultation questions, with a Build to Rent (BtR) consultation issued alongside.

Responses to both consultations have to be submitted by 2 May.

The White Paper broadly succeeds in bringing together all of the strands of England’s complex housing market, then connects them together so as to take a holistic approach to getting more homes built (and brought back into use). Most importantly, it is drafted in such a way that it reduces the risk of a hiatus in housebuilding – the Government should be praised for combining and putting forward its latest and extensive suggested measures for consultation over the next 3 months.
