Tackling poverty through housing and planning policy in city regions

Project Director: Dr Richard Crisp
Project Duration: 2015-2016

This project looked at the potential to embed poverty reduction, affordable housing and inclusive growth in housing and planning policy at the city-regional level in England. We conducted interviews and workshops with housing and planning experts to identify the extent to which housing and planning policies can be orientated to supporting households on low incomes.

The project team also included Ed Ferrari and Aidan While (University of Sheffield).
