This book analyzes the roots of the current housing crisis in England, critically reviews the development of policy under the New Labour and Coalition Governments, and presents a specific critique of the current Conservative Government’s housing and planning reforms. Demonstrating how successive governments have failed to achieve their objectives in this area, Duncan Bowie sets out a radical reform program based on an alternative set of policy priorities and delivery mechanisms. By focusing on the supply of sustainable, affordable housing, Bowie makes a timely argument for an integrated reform of policy on land, taxation, planning, and public investment.
