Supporting affordable housing delivery for a fair and just recovery: lessons from Europe

Bookmark

Summary

The pandemic has severely impacted all facets of the housing sector, emphasising a lack of available and affordable housing in some areas and creating uncertainty around construction and development. Across Europe, local governments have responded with short term measures to protect tenants, with some also committing to long term policy developments designed to increase the availability of affordable housing. Investments in new or existing infrastructure, as well as a commitment to social housing, are key policy areas that local government can support when leading an increase in available, affordable housing, a key part of delivering a local recovery from  Covid-19. This briefing will be of interest to officer and politicians working in housing, planning, communities and finance roles.
