The department does not forecast levels of future house building as delivery will be determined by local housing plans. In the comprehensive spending review we announced almost £4.5 billion investment in new affordable housing to help deliver up to 150,000 affordable homes. However, we are giving housing associations much more flexibility on rents and use of assets, so our aspiration is to deliver even more homes through our investment and reforms. The department will be publishing its impact assessment on the affordable rent model shortly.
