"Our analysis of the financial reports of over 175 of the largest associations suggests that the sector could bring forward an additional 44,000 new homes a year by 2029, through greater efficiencies and additional asset-backed borrowing."

Savills, Releasing untapped potential for more housing, 28th November 2016

"Over the course of this Parliament, the government expects to more than double, in real terms, annual capital spending on housing. Coupled with our resolve to tackle the long term challenges of land supply, this commitment to housing delivery represents a step-change in our ambition to increase the supply of homes for sale and for rent, to deliver a housing market that works for everyone.”

Chancellor's Autumn Statement, 23rd November 2016

""Ask almost any question about social fairness or problems with our economy, and the answer so often comes back to housing. High housing costs – and the growing gap between those on the property ladder and those who are not – lie at the heart of falling social mobility, falling savings and low productivity. [...] We simply need to build more homes. This means using the power of government to step in and repair the dysfunctional housing market. It means using public sector land for more and faster house building. It means encouraging new technologies that will help us to get more houses built faster. And putting in more government investment too.""
