Chris Townsend CBE, Head of Infrastructure at KPMG, said:

“While the effort to drive growth is welcome, a longer term approach to our housing infrastructure is needed to deliver more supply and real prosperity for the economy. Further reform that will help support the building of new, affordable and energy efficient homes is vital, as the country’s infrastructure plays an essential role in economic growth. Today is a good start and we look forward to more detail due later this Autumn, but delivering a medium-term sustainable plan that builds on today’s announcement is the real challenge.”
