The Long Term Housing Strategy

The Government announced the new Long Term Housing Strategy (LTHS) on 16 December 2014, which is the first long term strategic document in housing since 1998. LTHS has set out the following three strategic directions in order to gradually avert the current supply-demand imbalance :
  1. to build more public rental housing units and to ensure the rational use of existing resources;
  2. to provide more subsidised sale flats, expand the forms of subsidised home ownership and facilitate the market circulation of existing stock; and
  3. to stabilise the residential property market through steady land supply and timely demand-side management measures, and to promote good sales and tenancy practices for private residential properties.
