Open Day

TitleIn this project with Places for People we will be looking at fresh ideas, inspired by an examination of policy and practice in other countries, to generate innovative practice and policy that will boost the production of affordable housing for rent in the UK.

The project was officially launched at the Centre for Comparative Housing Research’s (CCHR) annual open day.

Copies of the presentations are available to download from here:

Dr Tim Brown, Director of CCHR, CCHR – De Montfort University: The Spending Review and Housing Supply – Dashed Expectations

Professor Michael Oxley, Professor of Housing, CCHR – De Montfort University: More houses or more welfare? Low Income Housing Tax Credits

Dr Darinka Czischke, Director & Jen Pearce, Researcher BSHFAffordable housing: Can we learn from other countries?
