Housing targets below national level are not set directly by Government, but are set out in regional spatial strategies and local development frameworks which are developed through the regional and local planning processes. The 2007 Green Paper "Homes for the Future: more affordable, more sustainable" (Cm7191), copies of which are in the Library, sets out the Government's long-term objectives in terms of housing supply.
