Bring forward a Social Housing White Paper

Last updated 3 years ago

As Boris Johnson has promised, we will bring forward a Social Housing White Paper which will set out further measures to empower tenants and support the continued supply of social homes. This will include measures to provide greater redress, better regulation and improve the quality of social housing.

Our verdict

  • This a pledge to publish a Social Housing White Paper, a follow-up to the 2018 Social Housing Green Paper, which was prompted by the devastating fire at Grenfell Tower in London in 2017.
  • The white paper was delayed due to COVID-19, but was eventually published on 17 November 2020, and does contain measures to address the areas outlined in the manifesto promise.
  • The white paper has been published and was broadly welcomed by the housing sector and interested parties, so this policy is ‘done’.

There's always room for debate

We’re serious about providing clear, up-to-date, non-partisan information. We focus on being consistent and fair in how we reach our verdicts, and always explain our reasoning. But there is always room for debate. So if you see it differently, we’d love you to tell us why. Or even better, submit an edit.
