Affordable Housing Commission

The Affordable Housing Commission

The  Affordable Housing Commission, AHC is an independent, non-partisan commission. Set against the backdrop of serious housing affordability crisis the Smith Institute*  with the support of the Nationwide Foundation**, established AHC, chaired by Lord Best with 15 leading players from across the housing world.
Over the lifetime of the Commission, it will be undertaking research and financial modelling, conducting polling and focus groups and publishing discussion documents.

A final report of the Commission’s findings and recommendations will be published in early 2020 and we will post a review of its findings.
