This independent research was carried out by the Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research (CCHPR) and funded by Shelter.

CCHPR’s first report examines the impact of the LHA cuts on poverty, forced moves and homelessness. The second report – presented here in a preliminary and full report form - examines the impact of these cuts on the affordability of neighbourhoods in London.
