EVENT Housing Workshop – 13th December – CaCHE and the University of Reading

EVENT Housing Workshop – 13th December – CaCHE and the University of Reading

In February the UK Government published the housing white paper, Fixing Our Broken Housing Market, followed by a consultation document on proposals for reform in September. In addition to this, Secretary of State has announced a forthcoming green paper on social housing, and significant changes for housing are also expected in the November budget. These developments signal a potential major shift in the direction of housing policy in England.

Workshop

The UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence in conjunction with the University of Reading, is running a one day workshop designed to look at the implications of these changes, and explore the way forward.
