This chapter examines the role of housing in the economic performance of cities in Great Britain. It proposes a framework for the analysis of housing dynamics capable of explaining the emerging workforce skills base of cities, and provides quantitative estimates of the key factors that determine household residential moves and location choices. The chapter analyses some of the key local-housing issues of the day, including the cumulative processes of urban decline, and discusses the impact of housing-based policies for improving city competitiveness.

Keywords:   housing, economic performance, Great Britain, workforce skills, location choices, urban decline
