Lyons Housing Commission – Update Report (February 2016)

11 February 2016

The Lyons Housing Commission, an independent group of 12 housing experts chaired by Sir Michael Lyons, was first convened in 2013 to advise on how a future government might bring about a sustainable increase in house building in England, and published its findings in 2014.

In December 2015, responding to the Conservative Government’s ambitious target of creating one million new homes by 2020, the members of the Commission decided to reconvene on a wholly independent basis to consider whether current policy initiatives were enough to reach that target and, if not, what other measures could be considered. This short report summarises the members’ findings.
