Prime Minister Theresa May chaired the inaugural meeting of the Housing Implementation Taskforce (05.02.18), to discuss the progress Government is making and further actions needed to increase housing supply.

The Taskforce is a cross-government working group attended by, among others, the Chancellor, the Housing Secretary, the Transport Secretary and several other Cabinet Ministers.

A Downing Street spokesperson said:

"The taskforce discussed the steps Government has already taken, including further investment at the Budget, planning reform, releasing land faster, the Housing White Paper and building more affordable housing.

"They emphasised the key role of Homes England in driving forward change, and also focused on the supply of new housing, public sector land sales, land banking, house-building skills and building the infrastructure needed for new housing developments."
