National Planning Policy Framework response

At the core of many of the problems we see - ranging from people unable to access social housing, to people renting from rogue landlords to mortgage repossession cases - is the chronic lack of affordable, secure and decent homes, particularly in the social sector.


Therefore, Shelter strongly welcomes the Framework's statement that 'The Government's key housing objective is to increase significantly the delivery of new homes.  Everyone should have the opportunity to live in high quality, well designed homes, which they can afford, in a community where they want to live'.
