Intergenerational fairness, housing and planning policy


Following the suggestions of Intergenerational Foundation’s report Hoarding of Housing: the intergenerational crisis in the housing market, Halina Ward argues that the UK Government has no consistent approach to future generations, and that ‘future generation’ arguments are often used to justify taking things away in the present.

Halina argues that such choices and trade-offs require strategies and policy frameworks, underpinned by institutions and processes, such as intergenerational impact assessments or a Select Committee on Future Generations.
