The BBC has very recently published an article about deemed improvements to the housing market in England and Wales and which should be incorporated in the White Paper coming before Parliament shortly.
In a survey carried out for the Local Government Association (LGA) concerning this, Martin Tett, LGA housing spokesman, is reported to have said that an opportunity to boost housing supply and improve affordability now presents itself to government.
He explained that the government must recognise that a substantial increase in house building by councils will be crucial to help ensure the availability of a mix of affordable homes both for rent and to buy for the people that will need them.

BBC article on improvements to the housing market
My proposal for the way housing (within England and Wales) should be marketed, is based on changing from vendor-centric estate agencies to buyer-oriented ones, as described in The Hendry Solution. This would not cost much to implement and would bring massive benefits to all local marketplaces.
