All-Party Parliamentary Group to Tackle National Housing Emergency

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) is taking a lead role in supporting a new All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Housing and Planning. The APPG for Housing and Planning, will be chaired by James Cartlidge, Conservative MP for South Suffolk, and is tasked with recommending wide-ranging, innovative solutions to reshape the housing market. The APPG will consider increasing the housing stock for both rental and private ownership, and speeding up building of sustainable housing in the UK, which now faces an annual shortfall of 130,000 homes. The APPG consists of MPs from a range of urban and rural constituencies. Read more on the RICS website.
