Fixing our broken housing market
A housing white paper setting out the government’s plans to reform the housing market and boost the supply of new homes in England.
This white paper sets out government’s plans to boost the supply of new homes in England.
It includes measures to ensure we:
- plan for the right homes in the right places
- build homes faster
- diversify the housing market
- help people now
As part of the white paper, we are also consulting on changes to planning policy and legislation in relation to planning for housing, sustainable development and the environment.
We are keen to hear from a wide range of interested parties from across the public and private sectors, as well as from the general public.
Alongside the white paper we are also publishing a number of supporting technical documents which provided the evidence underpinning many of the white paper proposals. The supporting documents comprise a number of responses to prior consultations, as well as new consultations on permitted development rights and Build to Rent.
These documents are available on the main collection page.
