Housing - Role of the Ministry of Housing

Housing - Role of the Ministry of Housing

"We have no immediate say on house prices, except for public affordable housing" says Mike Mathias, Premier Conseiller for Deputee Henri Kox

Housing is an issue that straddles many ministries. Mike Mathias explains the jigsaw to us, and where the Ministry of Housing fits; what they can achieve. He also explains the two arms of housing: capital market wants and needs versus the human right to a home and social cohesion.

We talk about the hopeful impact of the recently voted in Pactes du Logement, the way in which a combination of future reforms could help utilise land and empty buildings in a more constructive way for home-seekers.

This is the final episode in my mini-podcast series on Housing in Luxembourg, for now.
