Levelling Up: Missions and Metrics - Analysis of Mission 10

Levelling Up: Missions and Metrics

“The Levelling Up White Paper sets out twelve missions that support key levelling up objectives. These outline the medium-term ambition for the UK Government and act as an anchor for the expectations and plans of the private sector and civil society.”

The Rural Services Network has explored the missions and metrics and as part of their membership offer, has created an analysis for each local authority in SPARSE membership of RSN.  This shows  their position compared to other rural local authorities and the England Average.  This enables the council to see their performance for each of the measures that the Government says it will be focusing on.

Mission 10: By 2030, renters will have a secure path to ownership with the number of first-time buyers increasing in all areas; and the government’s ambition is for the number of non-decent rented homes to have fallen by 50%, with the biggest improvements in the lowest-performing areas.

Principal objectives:

Restoring a sense of community, local pride and belonging, especially in those places where they are slipping

How does this mission relate to spatial disparities?

This mission aims to provide a path to home ownership for first-time buyers and improve the standard of housing in the UK. Home ownership is associated with stronger social capital, including higher levels of trust, an increased sense of belonging and more investment in local areas. There is also some evidence that it improves children’s educational attainment, and future labour market earnings.

Metrics considered within the analysis:

Net additions to the housing stock per 100,000 of population
