B52: Housing Green Paper: More Homes, Better Homes, More Affordable Homes

4th September 2007.

The Government published its latest housing green paper on the 23rd of July entitled Homes for the future: More affordable, more sustainable and is seeking comments on its proposals until the 15th of October.

This Paper lays the foundations for the Government’s programme of increasing housing supply in order to cope with the high levels of demand for new housing and to stabilise the spiralling cost of buying a home. This bulletin will provide an overview of the Paper, giving details of all the proposals suggested in the Paper and a focus on a number of the key issues that arise from its publication. The bulletin will conclude with the initial reactions from those within local government and regeneration and will take a look at the consultation questions that arise from the Paper.
