This module provides an account of the principles and the development of housing policies in the UK from the nineteenth century to the present day. The module assesses government, voluntary and private sector responses to housing the population. There is an exploration of the meaning of home, the purposes of housing policy and the conceptualisation of housing need. The impacts of housing policy are examined, including its human consequences (eg crime and homelessness); the experiences of particular population groups (eg in terms of class, ¿race¿, ethnicity, gender, disability and age); and geo-economic outcomes (eg protection of the environment, land use and urban planning).
