Following on from Building Sustainable Communities and Affordable Housing, this monograph of essays focuses on the role that a revived private rented sector could contribute to the supply of new homes in the UK. What are the barriers that currently prevent major developers from entering the private rented sector? What are the fiscal and planning tools that could be adopted to lever-in greater investment into rented property? How should a professionalized private rental market be regulated, and in whose interests? What are the trade-offs in terms of affordable housing and key worker accommodation that may accompany a rise in the private rented sector?
