Localism Bill to the rescue!

Private housing construction 'has fallen'

*In fairness, it doesn't say how the figures compare with the same period 2009-2010* Private housing construction fell in the three months from December 2010 to February 2011 when compared with the three months beforehand, it has been shown. According to figures from the Office for National Statistics, this sector saw a 23.3 per cent decrease during this time - the largest of any field. The report found that the total volume of construction output dipped by 18.3 per cent in this period, with new work tumbling by 19.1 per cent and repair and maintenance dropping by 16.8 per cent.

    If yet another single square inch of HGB is lost, then we will all starve to death. Fact.

  • Isn’t part of the problem that demand has fallen off a cliff to do either people not wanting to take on the excessive debt, prices being too high and credit mechanisms no longer supporting ultra high house prices? Hence the VI bleating for support, and these silly FTB schemes.

    It’s a certainty that land is available for development either land-banked with outline or full planning permission but building has stopped (it pretty much stopped dead where I live after years of over-development in 2008).

    If only we could get to a realistic and sustainable level of pricing the housing market might pick up and unstick. However, it’s going to take a long time and some political will to allow the change in perception from investment to home. (The Major government did just that in the 1990s – got out of the way and stopped interfering.)
