CIH response to Inquiry by APPG for Ending Homelessness and APPG for Housing Market and Housing Delivery into housing solutions for homeless households – rethinking housing conversions

CIH has made a written submission to the joint enquiry from the APPG for Ending Homelessness and the APPG on Housing Market and Housing Delivery, into housing solutions for homeless households.

The inquiry sought views on how office and commercial space could be converted into genuinely affordable, decent housing to boost supply for those experiencing homelessness and other low-income households.

Whilst conversions could be a part of the solution, more oversight and control by local authorities will be needed than that which is currently awarded through the permitted development route.  We call for more long term funding and links to appropriate support.
