Understanding and responding to housing market change

Can public policy shape housing market outcomes to achieve wider social and economic goals or must it belatedly respond to mitigate some of the negative consequences of change?

Understanding and responding to housing market change is a new research summary from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation that looks at the UK housing market. The paper:

  • summarises evidence, largely from studies funded by the JRF, on recent changes in the housing market in England at national, regional, local and neighbourhood levels
  • highlights key challenges for developing public policies, intervention programmes and reforms.
