This chapter describes the recent developments in housing, examining a series of key themes that include affordability, housing supply, and governance. Particular attention is given to the potential implication of the final report of the review of housing supply in England. The chapter provides a critique of how New Labour's emphasis on ‘choice, responsibility, and opportunity’ in housing continues to worsen the inequalities in this area of social policy.

Keywords:   housing, housing supply, governance, affordability, inequalities
