CBI reaction to housing announcement

We commented on the Government’s White Paper on housing, published by the Rt. Hon. Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government

Rhian Kelly, CBI Infrastructure Director, said:

“A quiet revolution is needed to shake up how business and the Government deliver the UK’s housing needs, so this White Paper is a welcome step in the right direction.

“The intention to deliver a diverse mix of homes – especially affordable homes to rent – is particularly good news. We have called for the “one size fits all” approach to housing to be ditched, and are glad to see a move to building the right homes in the right places that fit the actual needs of people and communities.

“It’s encouraging the Government is looking at how to make it easier for small and medium-sized businesses to succeed in the market. Taking a clearer, more strategic approach to public land release will also see more bricks being laid, so we welcome the Government turning its eye to this developing area.”
