Building good quality homes that are affordable for everyone has never been more important. A year of the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted the link between inadequate housing and health and wellbeing. We also need to act fast to slow and reverse the effects of climate change on our planet. Decisions we make now will have a lasting impact for generations to come.
