CIH comments on new house building figures


Commenting on today’s house building figures, CIH chief executive Terrie Alafat said: "An 11 per cent increase in net supply to 189,650 net additions in 2015/16 is a step in the right direction but it falls far short of the 250,000 homes required each year to meet new and existing housing need.

Image of Terrie Alafat"With more and more people struggling to find an affordable place to live and increasing homelessness it’s vital that government uses next week’s Autumn Statement and the imminent housing white paper to significantly step-up supply and make sure people of all income level can access a home they can afford."
