UK HOUSING REVIEW 2024 from the Chartered Institute of Housing

Welcome to the 2024 edition of the UK Housing Review, edited by Mark Stephens, John Perry, Peter Williams and Gillian Young.

The 32nd edition was launched in March 2024. 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, Matthew Scott 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
