Redfern Review highlights need for homes of all kinds


The Redfern Review, published today, highlights a need for new homes for both sale and rent, CIH has said.

Image of TerrieCIH chief executive Terrie Alafat, who was on the Redfern Review advisory panel, said: "Home ownership remains an aspiration for many people and measures which support people and families to own a home remain important.

"However, what the Redfern Review clearly demonstrates is that the primary causes of the decline in home ownership are not related to the supply of new housing and are instead associated with factors like the decline in relative income for younger people.

"Our own research has shown that 79 per cent of people believe young people will struggle to access decent housing even if they work hard and have good jobs.

"The government has pledged to building more homes for both sale and rent, that everyone can afford. This review very clearly highlights how important it is that measures are put in place to achieve this."
