The government’s plans for housing

Britain needs 60,000 new homes building every year – an ambitious target for any developer or government. In 1978, Jim Callaghan’s government committed to a similar programme – with councils accounting for 44% of builds, this year, councils and housing associations made up 1%.

Theresa May has committed an extra £2 billion a year to councils and housing associations to tackle the housing crisis and the affordability of homes for those climbing on the property ladder. For that sort of investment, though, industry experts only 5,000 will be built – meaning an annual shortfall of 55,000.
