Ipsos Mori have conducted a poll on public confidence in different parties’ housing policies and how likely they are to deliver. Click here
When asking for public opinion on specific housing policies 71% said they would support introducing rent controls so rents cannot increase faster than inflation. Only 9% were opposed with the rest neutral or didn’t know.
Most popular was improving area infrastructure before building new homes with 75% approval.
Increasing Local Authority tax on empty and second homes was also popular at 65% approval.
However, housing is only a key factor for 23% of the populations decision on how to vote. Only 15% declared housing as a key problem for the UK well behind Brexit at 57% and the NHS at 52%
Whilst this apparent popularity could explain the Secretary of State, Robert Jenrick, going soft on his declaration that rent controls were a dead duck it also shows housing policy is not going to be a major influence on this general election.
