Councils Warn Of Now ‘Severe’ Need For Affordable Homes

Nearly all UK councils now say their need for affordable homes is either ‘severe’ or ‘moderate’. Lack of investment in genuinely affordable housing alongside deregulation of planning is reducing the ability for local authorities to secure the homes the nation needs. A report by APSE (Association for Public Service Excellence) – written and researched by the TCPA – finds that UK councils are becoming increasingly unable to meet demands for affordable housing. Overall, 98% of respondents describe their need as either ‘severe’ or ‘moderate’ with only 1% claiming that their need is not substantial. Download the report from the APSE website.
