The housing election: constituency profiles #ukhousing

This election is not supposed to be about housing. To politicians and much of the media the narrative is Brexit and the continuing realignment of British politics along lines of Leave and Remain.

Even when the debate moves beyond the B-word, housing has not really cut through – broadband, nurses and police officers have all had their moment in the spotlight but houses have not.

On the ground, though, the reality is different. Visit many constituencies and the topic remains at the front of many voters’ minds.

Around the country these debates shift: from a nimby reaction to housebuilding to affordability, Universal Credit and Grenfell Tower. A week out from the crucial vote, Inside Housing visits five constituencies to ask what impact housing is having on the battle for Number 10.
