We've produced a briefing that summarises the key housing announcements by the government in the Spring Budget, and our response to each.
This briefing was drafted before the coronavirus crisis took hold and we haven’t included the details of the policy changes the government has announced to support the country’s response, or any analysis of the impact of the crisis on the measures announced.
But we are working closely with housing associations and the government on responding to coronavirus, as well as the on other issues covered in this document. Find out more about our response to the coronavirus crisis.
The Chancellor announced a package of important housing measures, including:
We welcomed these commitments from the government, which reflect the sector’s calls for funding certainty, support to remediate unsafe buildings, action on homelessness and welfare reform.
We will continue to work with the government and with housing associations on the detail of these Budget proposals over the coming weeks and months.
