Changing the Housing Story – Shaping Futures report published
The Shaping Futures research project has explored the conventional housing policy narratives that have dominated government thinking in Australia, Britain and Canada over the past 20 to 30 years. It aims to construct more effective, progressive policy narratives robust enough to thrive within the tough competitive environments that prevail within public policymaking and budgetary processes.
The Shaping Futures report contains ten principles for housing policy and tax reform intended to provide a coherent framework for reforming housing policies. The policy proposals reflect the need for an enduring framework of consensual approaches that form a path towards better-performing housing systems in all three countries. It argues that ignoring this progressive path would risk unacceptable costs in lost productivity, increased inequality and environmental degradation.
The report, a summary version and each individual chapter are available on the Shaping Futures website.
Shaping Futures is supported by Policy Scotland in collaboration with the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence.
