This week, the Inside Housing news team’s workload has been understandably dominated by the Budget and Spending Review.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak delivered his Budget October 28th 2021.
The fiscal doubleheader given by the chancellor on Wednesday set out his post-pandemic economic plan for the country.
In truth, it was a quiet one for the housing sector, with many of the announcements either recycled or trailed earlier in the week.
This included an announcement of an £11.5bn affordable housing funding settlement, which was announced last year;
a £2bn cladding tax, which was first mooted by former housing secretary Robert Jenrick in February this year; and
a £1.8bn brownfield development fund that was released on Monday.
