Consultation on the new housing supply strategy

Consultation opened on 19 May 2021. Closing date 16 July 2021.


The Department for Communities (DfC) is currently in the process of developing a new Housing Supply Strategy.

This call for evidence is the first formal stage in an ongoing public engagement process to help inform the development of the Strategy. The call for evidence document sets out current understanding of the evidence available in relation to housing supply issues and invited comments and views on this.

This initial consultation will be one of a number of opportunities that will allow you to have your say in shaping the future of housing supply .


Consultation description

Use of a call for evidence represents best practice in progressing a co-production and evidence informed approach to the development of strategy and policy.

Responses to the questions within this call for evidence will be analysed, along with any other sources of evidence and information received, to inform the development of the draft Housing Supply Strategy. We are keen to hear from a wide range of bodies, groups and individuals from within the housing and related sectors as well as more generally across society.

The publication of this call for evidence was also supported by a series of focused engagement events held throughout the duration of the consultation period, including public workshop sessions.

The Department will publish a summary of findings document on its website, following the completion of the call for evidence and parallel engagement events.

It is intended that the emerging draft strategy will be subject to public consultation later in the year.
