Mobility, regulation and transformation
- We will make sure that more houses become available by creating incentives for people to move to more suitable accommodations. We want to stimulate this by higher relocation grants, professional housing coaches, a public campaign and cooperation within the Amsterdam region as a whole.
- Houses are there to be lived in. We will provide protection against buyouts of cheap and medium-priced houses in the entire city by a self-occupancy obligation. Whenever possible, we will provide an anti-speculation clause when a house is sold.
- We will ensure that people can live in existing buildings by transforming offices or shops into houses, by building lighter wooden constructions on top of buildings, by expanding possibilities of living above shops, and by temporarily allocating locations that do not have a residential purpose (yet) for housing.
