Abstract

The group shares the Governments concern as to the inadequate level of housing completions. We are however concerned that some of the Government’s proposals may have a negative impact on the quality of housing output, while not necessarily increasing the quantitative output. We are concerned that the focus of the Government’s proposals is misdirected. There is limited evidence that the slowing down of the development programme is due mainly to unnecessary delays caused by local planning authorities, or by the onerous nature of s106 agreements. More fundamental is the lack of financial support for affordable housing and for the transport, utilities and social infrastructure to ensure that new developments are both sustainable and marketable.
