Clarion Housing Group’s response to the Letwin Review

Austen Reid, Group Director of Development for Clarion Housing Group said:

“We welcome the Letwin Review’s proposals to promote a greater diversity of housing types and tenures on large building sites, which will not only deliver more affordable homes, but will speed up the rate of delivery.

“As the UK’s largest social landlord, we are playing an increasingly significant role in tackling the nation’s housing shortage, but securing the land we need to build new homes remains a major barrier. We are in favour of incentives to accelerate development, if we can strike the right balance and ensure landowners are not discouraged from releasing land. We now look forward to the government acting on the review and introducing policies to help us to deliver the homes this country needs.”
