Select Committee on National Policy for the Built Environment

The Housing of Lords select committee report asserts the importance of delivering a better built environment and criticises current government policy as unlikely to meet demand for either the quantity or quality of houses we need. The Committee does recommend the adoption of Lifetime Homes targets and highlights the need for a range of attractive specialist housing choices to meet a dual function that meets the lifestyle needs of an ageing population and where it can prevent, reduce or delay a crisis move.
