CIH responds to General Election result


Chartered Institute of Housing chief executive Terrie Alafat CBE said: "We hope our politicians can form an effective new government as quickly as possible – we need action now to solve the housing crisis and prolonged uncertainty will undermine that goal.

"In their manifestos all three major parties rightly recognised that we need an ambitious long-term plan to tackle our national housing crisis. We simply cannot go on as we are or the implications for future generations will be every bit as significant as the impact of Brexit.

"Whatever the new government looks like, we at CIH, along with housing professionals across the UK, are ready to work with them on developing that plan and putting it into practice."

She added: "We’d like to thank Gavin Barwell for the work he has done as housing minister, we appreciated his willingness to listen and work with the sector. That kind of approach is the only way we will be able to address the country’s housing challenges and build the genuinely affordable homes that we so desperately need."
