Innovative policy solutions to critical housing issues

Reports in our Housing Foresight Series Reports in our Housing Foresight Series

The objective of our Housing Foresight Series is to provide evidence-based research papers that support innovative policy solutions to critical housing issues.

The purpose of the series is not to set out the Campaign to Protect Rural England’s official policy position on the future delivery of housing. Rather, it will explore a number of ‘blue-sky’ policy solutions with the aim of inciting and provoking wide ranging discussion over the future shape of housing policy.

Over the next two years, eight research papers will be released that examine different areas that are impacting upon the delivery of housing in England.
