UK HOUSING REVIEW 2021 from the Chartered Institute of Housing CIH

Welcome to the 2021 edition of the UK Housing Review, edited by Mark Stephens, John Perry, Peter Williams, Gillian Young and Suzanne Fitzpatrick.

The 29th edition was launched in March 2021. You can buy a pdf or print copy, and certain sections are available online. On this page you can link to six Commentary Chapters by Mark Stephens, John Perry, Peter Williams and Suzanne Fitzpatrick, and by guest contributors Beth Watts and Sam Lister. You can also link to the Compendium of Tables, prepared by Gillian Young and Alan Lewis, which can be downloaded 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.

'I couldn't have built my databases without the UK Housing Review. Superb for adding context, it's a goldmine: I've often found its sheer range and combination of data triggers new ideas and perspectives.' Rob Cowley, former data editor of Social Housing magazine.

Financial support for the Review is provided by: Clarion, Crisis, Guinness Partnership, the Housing Studies Charitable Trust, London & Quadrant, the Northern Ireland Housing Executive, the Scottish Government, Settle Group, The Housing Finance Corporation and the Welsh Government.

The full pdf or print version of the UK Housing Review 2021 includes further Contemporary Issues Chapters by leading analysts, and is available to order from the Chartered Institute of Housing. Contemporary Issues covered this year are the post-Covid economy and housing market, the government's planning reforms in England and the UK's 'zero carbon' challenge.

On October 21 2021, the UK Housing Review 2021 Briefing Paper was launched at a virtual CIH event. It offers commentary on issues arising since March 2021 and is available as a free download.
