Independent View: Why a national approach will not resolve the UK’s housing crisis

Centre for CitiesBritain is in the midst of a housing crisis. For many people, soaring house prices mean that the notion of owning their own home is not a realistic prospect.

Decades of failed housing policies mean we are currently building around 100,000 fewer homes than required to keep pace with demand each year. Our latest report, Cities Outlook 2013, sponsored by the Local Government Association, shows that only by putting place back into housing policy can we provide a much needed boost to the UK economy, and take a big step towards resolving this crisis over the long term.
