"Room to Move?" Examining Professor King's findings

HBF commissioned Professor Dave King from Anglia Polytechnic University to examine the links between household formation and demand for housing space. The report concluded that rather than needing more smaller homes, as many have assumed, future housing demand will be overwhelmingly for larger homes. In addition to Professor King’s report, HBF published a paper examining the implications of his findings for housing and planning policies.   An abbreviated 20-page version of Professor King’s report is available.   A copy of the full report is available.
