3,700,000 population increase.. How many more houses?

Demand may remain pants, but the supply side frog keeps getting warmer.

Not sure how long we can go on without either better population management or a lot more housing

Largest increase was in Tower Hamlets and newham in London and in Manchester.

Says it all.

Plenty of third world immigrants moving into the slums , what are they going to do when the economy collapses soon? At least rural folk can grow their own food and have a few farm animals.London and Manchester offer a very grim future.

SW England has the highest proportion of 65+ aged people - almost 20% of the 5.8 million people. Pressure on health and social services own there?

London by contract has only 11% of it's population aged 65 or over - that's 900,000 people.

:unsure:

Population last year was estimated at 62mn for whole UK. Looks like if the census results for england are expanded for the rest of the country its nearer 67 million...

i think its really around 80m personally...

Does that mean our GDP per capita is 5% lower than we thought then...nice..

....so when it gets to the stage when the oldies can no longer cope on their own they, if they don't move into a home will move to where their kids live or the kids will move to them......until then they make a net contribution to the local community. ;)

How many new houses were built from 2001 to 2011?

.......people are now living in smaller places especially in big cities......you can tell by the number of cars parked on tarmacked front gardens....building into the roof space, out the back and even in the shed in the garden. ;)

GDP per capita was actually growing 10% slower during the decade than what was previously thought. That's a pretty significant amount.

http://www.communities.gov.uk/housing/housingresearch/housingstatistics/housingstatisticsby/stockincludingvacants/livetables/

Table 125

2001 - census figures; 21 207 000

2011 estimate; 22 814 000

Estimated 7.5% increase?

I suppose more new households have formed - lots of elderly living on their own in big houses, whilst young families live in tenement/slum housing HMOs.

Housing inequality more than a lack of houses?

http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/census/2011-census/population-and-household-estimates-for-england-and-wales/stb-e-w.html#tab-How-many-households-there-were-in-2011

There were 23.4 million households in England and Wales on 27 March 2011, a 7.5 per cent increase on the 21.7 million households in 2001. This was the second lowest percentage increase in households found between censuses in the last 100 years1, as growth in households between censuses has typically ranged between 8 and 17 per cent. Only the period between 1991 and 2001 showed lower growth, at 7.2 per cent. Figure 9 Number of household residents2 and households, 19111 ,3,6 - 2011 shows growth in the number of households compared to population growth between 1911 and 2011.

Regional and local and unitary authority differences in average household size

Average household size was similar in each region, ranging between 2.3 (in the North East) and 2.5 (in London).

At local and unitary authority level there was more variation. The lowest average household size was in City of London (1.6) followed by Kensington and Chelsea (2.0). Other local authorities with average household sizes of 2.2 or less were primarily coastal areas, although Chesterfield and Salford were also at this level. The local authority with the highest average household size was Newham (3.0), followed by Harrow (2.8). Some neighbouring local authorities also had average household sizes above 2.6.

This information is critical for local authorities for assessing and planning for housing needs. Future 2011 Census releases will include further detail about numbers and types of households.

I want to find figures for the average size of a dwelling. It seems the amount of properties, population and number of household have all risen at roughly 7.5%. But this doesn't tell you about what type of properties people are living in. Lots of crappy little flats opposed to the decent council houses of yester-generation.

I want to know the GIFA, the ceiling height. Are we living in mansions or sheds with beds?

DId anyone else here not bother filling that form out? I put mine through the shredder. All the info the government needs to know about me they already have. Anymore is an invasion of privacy.

Been a year and no fine yet. Empty threat IMO.

Did the same here.
