The persisting dilemma of the housing sector
“Government promises 300,000 new homes’’. This is a recent news headline from a BBC publication mentioning the government’s housing target by 2022. It only reiterates the persisting housing crisis in the housing sector of the UK. For the next few decades at least, more homes will be needed, and so more and more land is needed.
The UK’s housing delivery strategy
The government is committed to its plan to build homes thereby doubling the housing budget from 2018-19 to deliver 400,000 new homes. Recently, a new target of 300,000 new homes was unveiled and is expected to be achieved by the year 2022.
The National Infrastructure Delivery Plan brings reflects the government’s commitment to invest over £100 billion by 2020-21, alongside significant ongoing private sector investment in infrastructure. Combining the capital programme, loan schemes, help to buy and other measures, another £20 billion in investment in housing will occur.
The Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) aims to increase the number of new homes that are built in England by increasing the supply of public land and speeding up the rate that it can be built on, helping to stimulate local economic growth by using its land and investment, and attracting private sector investment in local areas.
Lastly, the government is creating a dispute resolution process to assist local planning authorities and applicants in agreeing acceptable planning terms within a set timescale. This resolution process will cease delays in future planning permission applications.
