National Housing Taskforce

The National Housing Taskforce is a sectoral and political coalition convened by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Housing and Planning.

RICS promotes the usefulness of surveyors for public advantage in the UK and in other parts of the world. See RICS for more information.

All Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs or APGs) are informal cross-party parliamentary groups run by and for Members of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. They may involve individuals and organisations from outside Parliament. The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Housing and Planning was established to identify innovative solutions for reshaping the housing market. See All-Party Parliamentary Group for Housing and Planning for more information.

  2. Housing associations
  3. Aesthetics and build quality.
