Press release: 10-point plan to solve housing supply crisis14 March 2017
A pan-industry group of housing professionals is calling on the Government to take bolder steps to secure increased housing supply over the longer-term.

Its report Future proofing housing supply offers 10 solutions which it says would help ensure – in conjunction with proposals set out in the recent Government Housing White Paper – that over 250,000 homes per annum are built every year.
