Now in its fourth edition, this textbook has been completely revised to examine the current state of housing policy in the UK. Exploring developments in housing policy made since Labour's 1997 electoral victory, the book addresses current issues including the 'brownfield versus greenfield' debate; the phasing out of renovation grants; the transfer of local authority housing to registered social landlords; boom, slump and boom in the owner-occupied sector.
Other topics addressed range from regional policy and housing across the UK, to social exclusion, community care and homelessness.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Book 25 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm doing an undergraduate degree in Public Policy and this book is a fantastic go-to guide on housing in the UK. I found it more useful than the recommended textbook for my course's housing module, and I'm currently finding it very useful to reference in my dissertation. Despite being fairly old it's still very relevant, I just wish an updated edition would be released!
