Abstract

Social housing in the UK is currently required to meet higher levels of sustainability than new private housing. But since tenants have little choice about their housing, this poses important issues about coerced consumption of sustainable housing. This article reports on on a survey of tenants attitudes to 'sustainable' features of their housing in two developments in Kent.
