Briefing on the Housing White Paper

This briefing outlines the announcements made in the Housing White Paper and the potential impact they have on housing associations.

15 February 2017

The Housing White Paper proposes a number of changes that will help reshape the approach to housebuilding and boost the nation’s housing supply. These changes are centred around four areas, corresponding to the chapters in the White Paper: 

  1. Planning for the right homes in the right places
  2. Building homes faster
  3. Diversifying the market
  4. Helping people now.

This briefing outlines the key features and new announcements under each of these areas, and the potential impact on housing associations. It also updates on next steps and how the Federation plans to respond to the white paper consultation.

Regional events with the Housing Minister to discuss the White Paper

Between the 20 February and 6 March the Minister of State for Housing and Planning, Gavin Barwell MP, will be attending nine regional events across the country to hear views on the Housing White Paper.

Attending one of these events is a great opportunity to talk to the Minister. Details on each of the events and how to book your place are listed on our website.
