Wave Of Prefab Homes Planned To Tackle UK Housing Crisis

Ministers are planning a new wave of prefabs in a drive to solve Britain’s housing crisis. More than 100,000 pre-packed modular homes could be constructed as the government looks at ways to meet its target to provide a million new homes by 2020. A government white paper due out next month will include measures to encourage banks to lend to firms that construct the homes off-site before delivering them to their final destination, the paper said. The initiative recalls the reconstruction drive which followed the second world war as prefabs sprung up across the country as the government sought to house families bombed out of their homes by the Germans.
