Creating a powerful voice for the North
The All Party Parliamentary Group for Housing in the North (the APPG) was established as a forum for parliamentarians to look closely at the impact of housing policy in the North and to set an agenda that addresses the needs and ambitions of our communities. Chaired by Ian Mearns, MP for Gateshead, meetings are well attended by MPs and Lords with a vested interest in the North East, North West, and Yorkshire and Humber.
The APPG is a vital part of the NHC’s work to represent member’s views at the highest levels of Parliament and government. As Secretariat to the group, the NHC uses the APPG to raise issues of concern and initiate debate. Most recently, the group has been key in promoting and gaining support for the findings of our Commission for Housing in the North which, through close consultation with our members and industry leaders, put forward recommendations on what is needed to address the housing challenges faced in the Northern regions.
Next Meeting of the APPG: Tuesday 20 February 2018
