Additional family homes being built in UK

ressMore family homes being built in UK with fewer flats. According to the analysis report from the Home Builders Federation (HBF), new homes being built in the UK are bigger with more bedrooms as changes in demand mean it is family homes that people want to buy, The average size of a new build homes increased by nearly 15% from an estimated 801 square feet to 918 square feet over the same period.

Stewart Baseley, HBF executive chairman: “The report illustrates the huge increase we have seen in house building since the economic crash but this is more than just a numbers game. We have an acute housing crisis that can only be solved by building more of the right homes in the right places, Government policy has allowed the industry to focus on responding to the needs of buyers in this regard and, as a result, the industry has delivered huge increases in supply over the last three years. The industry is planning to deliver further increases in output. By addressing the entrenched problems with planning and developing further positive policies to promote development the Government can help maintain this momentum.”
