A collection of viewpoints on the UK housing system
This publication is a companion to ‘The Future of Housing: Rethinking the UK housing system for the twenty-first century’. It is a collection of new and emerging ideas about the UK housing system by a wide range of academics and practitioners. The papers were compiled for the Consultation on ‘The Future of Housing’ which took place over three days at St George’s House, Windsor Castle.
This collection of essays reflects on key topics regarding urban transformations currently taking place in Europe and the role that social housing has in fostering more liveable, sustainable communities.
Previous research has identified the costs of unauthorised Gypsy and Traveller sites and the possibility of generating income through provision of authorised sites. This research builds on these previous studies and broadly supports their findings.
