Britain Building Again As New Homes Rise By Highest Level In 8 Years

New figures show the number of new homes has risen 11% in a year – the highest annual total in 8 years (since 2007 to 2008), representing the third consecutive year-on-year increase. Housing and Planning Minister Gavin Barwell welcomed the figures as further evidence that government measures to deliver more homes were working and that Britain is building.The figures mean more than 893,000 additional homes have now been delivered since 2010. The 189,650 net additions over the past year resulted from: 163,940 new build homes, 30,600 gains from change of use between non-domestic and residential, 4,760 from conversions between houses and flats and 780 other gains.
