Britain’s population is rising, particularly in South East England. For many years, house-building has lagged the growth in household numbers. Parties are committed to expanding house-building, though the recent past suggests there are a series of obstacles to delivering the 200,000 homes per annum required. Policy solutions to the housing crisis will be examined in this panel, along with the political and popular obstacles to bringing down house prices.
