ARCH Chief Executive, John Bibby recently attended the launch of
a new independent, free standing inquiry into affordable housing in
The commission is chaired by Lord Best and includes a team of
widely respected housing experts and parliamentarian commissioners.
It is supported by the Nationwide Foundation, and the Smith
Institute will act as secretariat to the commission.
In preparation for its launch, the Affordable Housing Commission
published the results of a national poll, showing that two thirds
of people believe that there is a national crisis over affordable
housing and 52% believe it will get worse over the next decade.
The commission will include calls for evidence and is expected
to be disseminating its findings by early 2020.
