    In a Public Accounts Committee report published today, Chartered Institute of Housing (CIH) is calling on all parties to commit to developing a long-term plan to solve the UK’s housing crisis.

    “CIH is also calling on the next government to review the welfare reforms that have been introduced since 2012 and measures due to be rolled out over the next few years”, 24housing, reports.

    Terrie Alafat CBE, chief executive of CIH said:

    “Tackling our housing crisis has to be a top priority for all political parties. We need cross-party consensus to drive forward the measures that will make a difference.”

    The following are the CIH’s long-term plans:

    • Building more homes
    • Making homes less expensive
    • Bringing down homelessness
    • Ensuring that the welfare system is not obstructing moves to make housing more affordable

    Alafat said:

    “We know we need to build around 250,000 homes a year in England alone to keep pace with our growing population, but we have failed to build anywhere near that number for decades. This is a long-term challenge that needs a long-term plan from whoever is in power come June 9.”

    She also said that:

    “Whoever wins the election needs to take a step back and make sure that welfare policies are not obstructing housing policies designed to make sure people can access a decent home at a price they can afford.”
