Councils to be ordered to build new homes

Posted on 7 February 2017

Councils will be ordered to build thousands more homes, with an emphasis on high-rise blocks and city centre developments, as part of the Government’s housing strategy.

Too few councils have plans to meet the unprecedented housing demand, the Government will say, with 40% of local planning authorities lacking an adequate plan for building new homes to meet the projected growth in household numbers.

New centralised standards will be set for local councils to project their future housing needs, with the expectation that the plans will be reviewed every five years, the Guardian reports this morning.
