What changes to government policy would you like to see that would allow you to build more homes?

Guy Slocombe, chief investment officer at Hyde, said: “We would like to see the government address funding to support residential regeneration in the long term. With increasing focus on both improving housing standards and the 2030 & 2050 targets on carbon reduction there will be a proportion of existing stock which won’t be fit for purpose and in some cases the right solution will be to rebuild but this is simply unaffordable under the current funding regime.

“We would also call on the government to work closely with the sector to develop the detailed policies to support the proposed Infrastructure Levy and extension of Right to Buy to housing associations to ensure the supply of social rented homes in not depleted as an unintended consequence.”
