The Government recognises the cost of delivering affordable housing and has given councils the tools they need to build more homes. In the Levelling Up White Paper, we committed to reviewing how to support councils to deliver in greater numbers, alongside housing associations.

It is for councils to determine the size, type and tenure of the homes they build.
