The Intergenerational Foundation (IF) welcomes the opportunity to comment on government policy towards Starter Homes. The UK’s housing affordability crisis is one of the main focuses of IF’s research agenda, and since its foundation in 2011 they have published a number of research papers on this issue.

IF recommends that Starter Homes should only ever provide a maximum of 50% of the amount of affordable housing which is built on a given site, in order to foster the development of mixed and balanced communities.
