Catalyst welcomes housing strategy, warns more needs to be done

Rod Cahill, Chief Executive of Catalyst Housing, has responded to the Government’s Housing Strategy, published today. He said:

“There is a desperate need for more homes, and it’s good to see the Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister taking this issue seriously. The support for first time buyers is obviously welcomed, but with average house prices more than seven times average incomes in London and the South East we are keen to work with the government to help deliver more affordable options for young people keen to get on to the housing ladder.”
