UK HOUSING REVIEW 2023 from the Chartered Institute of Housing CIH

Welcome to the 2023 edition of the UK Housing Review, edited by Mark Stephens, John Perry, Peter Williams and Gillian Young.

The 31st edition was launched in March 2023. You can buy a pdf copy, and certain sections are available online. CIH members can also now receive the Review as a member benefit. On this page you can download the Executive Summary of the Review. You can link to six Commentary Chapters by Mark Stephens, John Perry and Peter Williams, and by guest contributors Lynne McMordie, Annie Owens and Sam Lister. You can also link to the Compendium of Tables, prepared by Gillian Young and Alan Lewis: the tables can be downloaded individually in pdf or Excel format.

Commentary Chapters in this year's Review include analysis of trends in UK housing markets and in meeting housing needs, housing provision and public expenditure on housing, the government's current investment plans, homelessness and social security benefits.

'I look forward to the launch of the UK Housing Review every year. It's an essential source for anyone that wants to feel informed about the current and past impact of housing policy across tenures and across the UK. I mostly use it for the handy data and exclusive analysis, but the essays are really insightful. More than once I've been able to simply share them with colleagues, rather than trying to explain an issue myself.' Clare Powell, CIH member

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