Overview

"This is a key reference for students and researchers in housing and planning, geography, and social policy." The book analyses the operation and impact of the Right to Buy policy. It includes a critique of the Housing Act and the 2001 Housing (Scotland) Act. The enactment of these changes under a Labour Government affirms the continuance of the Right to Buy. The authors take stock of its profound effect on housing policy, reversing the growth in social housing developed over the twentieth century, transforming the nation's tenure structure and revolutionising the UK housing system.
