The Key Ideas

#73 Task the National Housing Company with ensuring sufficient supply of very affordable rental housing to mitigate poverty

A mass programme of public rental housing as already outlined would be one way that people would be able to gain access to good quality housing which is efficient to heat for affordable rents. This will help. The ability to upgrade existing housing will improve the quality of life (though not reduce costs since the savings in heating are the means through which the improvements would be made).
