Labour Housing Group is introducing a set of new, short Briefings intended to provide a short, readable introduction to topical housing-related issues. They will be in “PDF” format so that readers can view them online or print them out as convenient.
They are intended to give a short, factual outline, a summary of current Labour Party policy and a commentary on the issues from the viewpoint of LHG .
We now offer briefings on the following topics:
- A short introduction to the causes of Rough Sleeping and what can be done about it.
- An analysis of affordable housing and why it matters
- A description of the issues related to the Private Rented Sector
- A survey of Rural Housing and how its issues are both similar to and different from urban housing.
- An explanation of why Leasehold Reform is long overdue
