Description

`Essential reading for decision makers and those on the front-line concerned with the provision of housing fit for the new millennium. The reform of housing policy is essential if we are to meet the challenge of combating social exclusion.' Chris Pond MP`We strongly need new ideas which place decent, affordable housing at the heart of policy to create inclusive and sustainable communities. This book offers new thinking to achieve these aims.' Chris Holmes, Director of Shelter`This book is a valuable contribution to developing new thinking in housing.' David Butler, Chartered Institute of HousingThe Labour Housing Group (LHG) has been at the forefront of the housing debate for the past decade. In this ground breaking study, the LHG explores how housing can contribute to the `Third Way' agenda of addressing social exclusion by involving stakeholders, balancing state and market interests and addressing devolution. The distinguished contributors to this volume - ranging from members of the Labour government to well-known practitioners and academics - examine ways in which the much-touted `Third Way' can be translated from rhetoric into real and meaningful practice that has a positive impact on the lives of the community.The debate over the provision of adequate housing for all is scrutinised from a variety of perspectives, such as that of consumer, of provider, and of regulator. The authors make explicit the links between housing, health and the environment; set out a new agenda for housing; and explore what the `Third Way' might mean for housing stakeholders and those working in or studying housing and social policy.show more
