They predict net immigration will average 174,000 a year up to 2050, swelling the population to 72 million.
I knew the population was supposed to be increasing over the next few decades, I had no idea it was by that much.
Thats a net increase of a million people every 5-6 years from now until then.
Given that we only have, theoretically, a million empty homes, (which is not really that accurate as many are second homes, derelict, homes for sale, etc), how many houses need to be built if we add a million people every 5-6 years?
If we do not add enough houses, HPI is inevitable, so what are the realistic chances of adding enough houses to accomodate 2 million more people a decade, and how many houses would it take?
