This report from UK think tank Bright Blue presents a new centre-right vision for housing.

The housing situation in modern Britain is bleak. We struggle to build nearly as many homes as we have in past decades, real house prices are the highest in over a century, over two-thirds of renters have given up on the hope of owning a home and thousands remain homeless. It does not have to be this way. This collection offers a glimmer of hope by presenting radical new ideas from leading decision makers and thought leaders in four key areas: security, community, stewardship and conservation. The hope is that this becomes a first step to a clear centre-right vision for providing Britain with the homes it needs.
