The Housing Policy Group is the newest of our working groups. Thirteen people with a varied range of interests in housing matters came to the first meeting in early February 2017. The list of issues they might tackle ranged from the national policy level, through regional- and county-level to local concerns. It will be up to the group to choose which of many difficult areas it can get involved with. We hope it will mean we can build an influential and respected role in this area.
