Commission warns 500,000 affordable homes at risk of being lost

The affordable housing gap could widen by 500,000 over the next five years without urgent action, a report has warned today.

The Affordable Housing Commission has published a 12-point housing recovery plan, which puts social and affordable housing at the heart of the recovery.

The measures include returning housing grants to the previous levels, reforms to Right to Buy and Permitted Development Rights, and caps on rent rises.
