Substantial actions on housing needed in Autumn Budget

06 November 2017

The RTPI is calling on the Chancellor to use his Autumn Budget to follow through the Government’s promises to tackle the housing crisis with “substantial actions”.

“We hope to see major proposals in the Budget - anything less will not be enough to address this crisis.”

Trudi Elliott, RTPI’s Chief Executive, said:

“While the housing crisis can feel insurmountable, there has been progress in some areas. There is a new atmosphere of urgency around housing. The Grenfell Tragedy has brought new attention to social housing. Housing was also at the centre of the recent party conferences. Now we need substantial actions to follow this interest.

“We hope to see major proposals in the Budget - anything less will not be enough to address this crisis.”

In 2016 our 16 Ways in 16 Days campaign set out the Institute’s recommendations for tackling the housing crisis in England.

In advance of the 2017 Autumn Budget, the Institute is revisiting these recommendations to explore what has changed and highlight the changes we still need to see. Please read our latest thoughts here.
