Financing affordable social housing in the UK; building on success?

Financing affordable social housing in the UK; building on success?

In this article Peter Williams and Christine Whitehead look back at the use of private finance to support social housing provision in the UK (and mainly England) since 1988 and discuss how this market might evolve in coming years. Part of this discussion derives from the findings of regular seminars hosted at the London School of Economics on an annual basis from 1989 to 1999 where stakeholders discussed the evolution and development of the private finance regime to the point where funding affordable housing had become a mainstream activity.
