Abstract

Jo Richardson explores the lack of adequate social housing in the UK, finding that it is partly due to planning and finance processes and insufficient capital funding from government, and partly due to rejection of new developments by local people and an inability to get developers to see that building social homes is ‘viable’. Negotiation with local people in the planning process for new housing, as well as possible learning and adaptation from long-running tax incentive schemes in other countries, could help solve the issue.
