The long-anticipated, repeatedly delayed Housing White Paper is finally due to be published next week. It will be a seminal moment for Theresa May’s government, and of course for the industry.
Many of the policies contained in the White Paper have either been announced at the Autumn Statement or trailed heavily in the media. In particular, we can expect measures in the White Paper on land, planning, off-site manufacturing and promoting the delivery of new housing across all tenures.
WA has today published a new report offering a view on the political direction of travel for housing, and which policies are most likely to be incorporated in the government’s White Paper.
