Yorkshire Housing’s chief executive, Mervyn Jones, responds to the recent publication of the Government White Paper on housing.

Mervyn said: “We welcome the White Paper as it signifies that the Government are committed to ending the current housing crisis in the UK and we’re pleased to see that this is a priority.”

“It’s encouraging to see that Government understands the challenges faced by all housing associations and that they will take measures to improve some of the outdated policies which may slow processes down.”

“As the region’s biggest developer of affordable homes, we have committed to building 3,000 affordable new homes over the next three years and we’re looking forward to exploring some of the options presented in the White Paper to help us achieve our goal.”
