Subject: Are we at “The end of social housing”? How might this impact on future Urban Regeneration schemes?
To respond to this subject the student worked about need and demand in England in the21st century for the social building. Based on the recent changes of the housing system in England, the report will focus on the historical background of social housing to reason about the future role of social housing. In the actual economic context, in which there is a high affordability pressure, as well as the increase of the population; within the social sector the demand varies a lot. Afterthe 1st coursework in urban regeneration course, the student observed in England the importance to find a way to improve the quality about Decent Homes Standard which gives lot of importance to neighbourhood quality, location and functioning of local communities.
There are many factors that may affect the provision of social housing going forward such as localism, community led planning, marketrents... Recently the government presented the new homes bonus schemes, it will be interesting to developed about this new strategy and conclude with its immediate effects in the future.

Housing need and demand
Kate Barker’s review of housing supply (2004) permits to understand the state of housing sector in England concerning need and demand. Her analysis relates the lack of housing supplyin 2004 and allows to understand the rise of demand for renting. Before going into the issue of need and demand of social housing, the student wishes first to summarise the history of housing in England in the early twenty-first century. The housing in England is characterised by the rise of demand for renting (in general and social) which is for a big part due to the increase of house prices.Over the last 30 years, UK house prices went up by 2.4% a year. Compare to the EU where the house prices went up by 1.1% a year, in Germany it was 0.0% and in France 0.8% (Barker, 2004). The increase of house price is due to the housing system, characterized by owner occupation. In this housing system the new households are not able to buy their own house due to the rise of prices compare to theirincomes. Another negative factor for the lower-income household is the recent competition for private rented housing.
So, they are forced to choose renting. However, in most cases the tenants in social lettings are not able to move and buy their own house, or even used their right to buy (annexes 1).
