We understand that the UK needs to increase housing supply from around 200,000 net additions to 300,000 homes per year to identify housing needs of 1.5m homes in the next five years (see our previous report with the Town & Country Planning Association). We have identified Build to Rent (BTR) as a model that can help address and meet these goals (see our previous report with Future of London). The task before us then is to clarify the potential of BTR by identifying specific policies that can yield great levels of supply from already expanding BTR investments. We provided an independent role in the collection and analysis of data for this research conducted by Savills, and sponsored by Barclays, which endeavours to make clear which specific policies can help nourish the BTR sector while it is in its infancy phase.
