UK Housing Review 2016 Briefing Paper


UK Housing Review 2016 Briefing Paper

The UK Housing Review briefing is an update to the UK Housing Review 2016, a comprehensive analysis of housing issues and statistics across the UK.

The briefing assesses the implications of new policy and market developments, examining areas such as housing demand and supply; homeownership, affordability and mortgage access; affordable rented housing; homelessness; welfare reform; and the reclassification of housing association finances. It also takes a separate look at Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, drawing some overall conclusions about the direction of housing policy following the devolved government elections.

With thanks to the Scottish Government, the Welsh Government, the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, Affinity Sutton, Crisis, HouseMark, Housing Executive, L&Q, Orbit Group and Southern Housing Group for sponsoring the research and publication of this review.
