Synopsis

Despite the improved supply and quality of housing in the UK and Europe over the last 60 years, the future of housing remains uncertain. Will the supply of new housing meet demand? Is decent, affordable housing an achievable goal? How far will governments seek to shape the market? How will they respond to demographic pressures in different parts of the country? Will housing wealth become a central issue in wider debates about the future of public services? This book looks at the big questions affecting the future of housing as a key indicator of social and economic well-being in the 21st century. It brings together specially commissioned contributions by leading housing experts who explore a wide range of themes and issues affecting the prospects for the coming 20 years or more. Drawing on the evidence of the past and present they analyse the implications of current trends to consider how markets and governments might respond to the challenges ahead. The book is not a work of prophecy or a manifesto for action. It is designed to stimulate and contribute to informed debate about possible futures and what can be done to influence what happens.

"Building on the past" will be of interest to all those concerned about the future of housing, neighbourhoods and communities over the next 20 years.

Peter Malpass is Professor of Housing Policy and Head of the School of Housing and Urban Studies at the University of the West of England, Bristol, UK. Liz Cairncross was a lecturer in the Department of Planning at Oxford Brookes University, UK, and is now Senior Research Associate at Picker Institute Europe.
