The Prime Minister has outlined the likely contents of the Housing and Planning Bill. The starter homes initiative (replacing the provision of on-site affordable housing) is perhaps the largest and most controversial change but the Bill will also contain other initiatives designed to boost housing supply.

The 'trailer' does not contain anything new in respect of the Build to Rent sector, either indicating that the government considers that it has now successfully kick-started investment and delivery of purpose built rented homes, or indicating that policy over the next 5 years will be all about home ownership. One to watch.
