The Building and Social Housing Foundation has emailed its latest report "The Future of Housing", which has just been published.

It would be rather tricky to summarise the document other than to say it provides a critical look at the state of the post-credit-crunch housing market.

The report is a synthesis of a meeting instigated by BSHF bringing together three dozen or so practitioners and academics from different housing-related disciplines, some with overseas experience, for three days of discussion and debate at St George's House in Windsor Castle in the summer.

Many of the points raised are familiar, but the report does pose plenty of questions worthy of consideration.

Certainly I would put it on the reading lists of Grant Shapps and John Healey, if they haven't already read it.
