HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO THIS?
Since 1980s the UK Government has failed to deliver on the proposed house building targets. Since then this has left the UK population in shortage of approximately 3 million houses. Urgent action is required!
HOUSE PRICES INCREASING DUE TO SIMPLE ECONOMICS.
There is more demand than supply!
One million houses need to be built urgently. The variation of approaches by Local Authorities and the lack of advance infrastructure planning is delaying developers in delivering the required housing volumes.
The Conservative UK Government is torn between forcing through legislation such as the National Planning Policy Framework and Permitted Development rights and allowing Local Authorities autonomy to tailor the government policies to local needs.
There is an inconsistent approach by Local Authorities which is undermining development.
House Building Targets Missed Year on Year. Government torn between relaxing rules and allowing localism in planning.
