Are you concerned about the state of current housing provision? Worried about further decline in the years ahead?Decent Homes for Alladdresses fundamental questions about the current housing crisis; examining its history and evolution.

The first text on the housing-planning interface, it explores the relationship between planning and housing supply, focusing on housing supply, the quality and form of residential development, affordability and sustainability and the changing nature of planning itself. The questions covered include:
