Comparing modern housing to older housing stock

This review compares modern housing (homes built since 1991), older housing stock (pre-1991) and housing built between 2002 and 2004, using data from the Communities and Local Government’s English House Condition Survey and Survey of English Housing.

The review summarises the results and statistics from these surveys and provides a snapshot of households’ views on their homes and neighbourhoods, including suggestions for potential improvements to future housing.
