Planning Policy Statement 3: Housing was published in November 2006, outlining the strategic housing policy of the government of the United Kingdom, which was "to ensure that everyone has the opportunity of living in a decent home, which they can afford, in a community where they want to live." The policy was developed in response to the Barker Review.
It replaced Planning Policy Guidance 3: Housing, which had been published in March 2000.
According to the document, the policy is to be achieved through:
- The provision of a wide choice of homes, or varying sizes, values and tenures.
- Widened opportunities for home ownership.
- Improved affordability through an increased housing supply.
- Creation of sustainable, inclusive and mixed communities.
