Summary: Despite the improved supply and quality of housing in the UK and Europe over the last 60 years, the future of housing remains uncertain. Will the supply of new housing meet demand? Is decent, affordable housing an achievable goal? How far will governments seek to shape the market and respond to demographic pressures in different parts of the country? This book looks at the big questions affecting the future of housing as a key indicator of social and economic well-being in the 21st century.
