Another We Need More Homes Claim

Recommended Posts

We are only building half the homes we need - and younger couples are suffering most

  • The latest household projections suggest that we need over 220,000 additional homes in England each year until 2031 if the projected growth in households is to be accommodated.
  • Currently we are building only 54% of that number - putting pressure on prices and rents.
  • The housing crisis is worse in London and the wider south east where 55% of the homes required need to be located.
  • Even if the homes required are actually built the latest government household projections suggest that couples aged between 25 and 34 will be less able to live in their own home in 2031 than their counterparts in 2011.

In my opinion, largely nonsense. There are literally hundreds of thousands of homes lying empty. Also, many people own more than one home, in some cases dozens. Let's remedy those problems, in particular no more than one house per person.

We need more jobs.......more jobs that can pay the price of living in the UK today...........they will not build them for the growing numbers of people living in this country that need them.....can't think why. ;)

Why do they 'need' to be in the south east? Is there a deposit of iron ore or something there that isnt available elsewhere.

Well obviously they need to be there to help service all the other people who already live in the South East
