Tories want 'innovative' ideas on building more and cheaper homes

Tories want 'innovative' ideas on building more and cheaper homes

The Tory Reform Group has launched a public call for evidence seeking "innovative policy proposals to address the two-fold challenge of availability and affordability of homes to rent and buy."

The call forms part of a year-long campaign, launched last week, which the TRG says will focus on housing policy.

"Rents are rising, home ownership is falling, and too many households are spending more than half their income on housing costs. A series of very welcome government initiatives have been launched to help people buy their first home, but there is undoubtedly more radical thinking needed to address the long-term crisis," says TRG national chairman David Fazakerley.

"We are on an unsustainable path and need to think outside the box to begin turning things around," says Fazakerley, who wants organisations and individuals with policy expertise to respond to the call. 

The TRG - which describes itself as pursuing "a market oriented agenda that works for everyone, regardless of background" - says individuals or organisations should make contact by the end of September.
