We all know that we have to boost housing supply, so the Government's £44 billion package of measures to deliver 300,000 more homes a year is a step in the right direction. But as stated by the Chancellor, there's no one single solution to the housing crisis', so we need to look at more than just the numbers.

We all recognise the need to build more homes to improve affordability, particularly for young people who can face eye-watering deposits. More housing supply is a crucial part of the required response. The key to boosting this supply is diversification, which will enable a range of large and small housing companies and local authorities to bring their capacity and expertise to boost housing production.
