CML: Housing in regional markets - and the need for affordable flood insurance

Today, we look at why the housing market in London differs from the rest of UK. The capital’s rapid growth, attraction to migrants from within and outside the UK, and governance by a mayor create unique challenges and opportunities. We look forward to publication of London’s long-awaited housing strategy, and hope it maximises the potential for lenders to contribute to future needs.

We also look at what’s happening in housing markets in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – where first-time buyer activity is picking up.

And with large parts of the UK mopping up after recent floods, we urge the government and insurers to reinforce consumer confidence by making affordable flooding insurance widely available.

To see all the stories in full, go to the latest issue of  CML News & Views.
