"Disastrous" loss of social housing

Founding SHOUT member Steve Hilditch writes at Red Brick on significant loss of social rented housing in recent years.

Latest figures released by the CIH show that in 2012-13 the stock of social rented homes in England fell by 19,189. In 2013-14 this figure more than doubled to 43,850. The loss over two years of over 63,000 homes compares with additions to the social rented stock (eg through new build) of a mere 28,000 homes.

"It is hard to exaggerate what a disaster this is for housing in England" writes Steve. You can read the full blog here.
