A Parliamentary Committee is to investigate the housing crisis by launching an inquiry into financing more homes.
The Communities and Local Government Select Committee will focus on what the government needs to do in order to deliver more homes to meet the nation’s housing needs.
The committee plans to include both public and private housing against the backdrop of limited mortgage finance, reduced grant funding and new housing policy.
They will also look at the opportunity for greater use of the private finance initiative or an alternative.
Also on the agenda will be the government’s affordable rent programme, with the committee set to examine the long-term sustainability of the scheme.
The committee is seeking written submissions from interested parties, with submissions accepted up until October 21.
Written submissions are invited from interested parties addressing some or all of the following issues:
The committee has requested each submission is no more than 4,000 words long, including a bullet pointed summary, and be accompanied by a covering letter containing the name and contact details of the individual or organisation submitting evidence.
A copy of the submission should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and marked “New Housing”.
