Fair to Middling: Report of the commission on intermediate housing

The Commission on Intermediate Housing was set up by Centre for London to investigate the strengths and weaknesses of current housing policies with respect to those on middle incomes,  building on the analysis contained in Hollow Promise.

In Fair to Middling, the Commission looks at whether housing for working people with modest incomes in London can be improved and if so, how. The report goes on to argue that intermediate housing – that is sub market housing catering to people on modest incomes – could help to ease London’s housing crisis, but currently amounts to less than 2 per cent of housing stock in the capital.

The Commission was jointly chaired by Cllr Rock Feilding-Mellen (Deputy Leader, Kensington and Chelsea) and Cllr Claire Kober (Leader, Haringey).
