Housing White Paper, Feb 2017

In February 2017, the Department for Communities and Local Government published its Housing white paper and supporting documents. These set out the government's plans to reform the housing market and boost the supply of new homes in England.

The white paper “Fixing our broken housing market” sets out a broad range of reforms that government plans to introduce to help reform the housing market and increase the supply of new homes. Alongside the white paper are published some supporting technical documents which provided the evidence underpinning many of the white paper proposals. DCLG is also launching a new consultation on planning and affordable housing for Build to Rent.
