Welcome to the 2018 edition of the UK Housing Review, editors Mark Stephens, John Perry, Steve Wilcox, Peter Williams and Gillian Young.

The 26th edition of the Review was launched in March 2018 at the offices of Clarion Housing Group and certain sections are available online. This site features six Commentary Chapters by Steve Wilcox, John Perry, Mark Stephens and Peter Williams (one written jointly with Suzanne Fitzpatrick and Beth Watts). It also has all of the Compendium of Tables, available for download in PDF or Excel format.

Commentary chapters in this year's Review include analysis of trends in UK housing markets and in housing needs, as well as of housing provision and public expenditure on housing, the government's current investment plans and topics such as homelessness. There are also chapters on the effectiveness of help for first-time buyers, how the planning system helps to deliver affordable housing and how the purpose of social housing has changed over the past 50 years and is currently changing (this last one is downloadable).
