Timber Industries and the Housing Crisis

The new All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for the Timber Industries has launched a new report titled ‘How the timber industries can help solve the housing crisis’, that aims to provide solutions to the UK’s housing and climate crises.

A worthwhile read for all involved in housebuilding, David Warburton, MP for Somerton and Frome, and chair of the APPG, commented: “We are at a vital junction, where the imperative to build more homes is converging with the urgent need to reduce carbon across all of our markets. Now is the time to put forward policies that will enable us to build a more productive and low-carbon housing sector.

“By levelling-up the existing timber and forestry supply chain, and making greater use of modern methods of construction, we can deliver more quality homes – and we can do this sustainably and at pace.”
