ASI comments on new housing reforms

The Adam Smith Institute has strongly welcomed the Government's housing reforms announcement by Secretary of State Robert Jenrick last week.

The ASI’s Head of Research Matthew Lesh said:

“The Government’s housing reforms will improve the lives of millions by providing access to quality, affordable housing while substantially boosting the economy. They could finally succeed where others have failed: solving the housing crisis.

“The focus on densification, building around stations and on brownfields will make a real difference. The ability to demolish vacant buildings for new developments without lengthy bureaucratic processes will not only reduce antisocial behaviours but also provide more places for people to live.

“These reforms will enable more people to live where they can be most productive and earn the highest incomes while helping reduce commuting and carbon emissions.
