The National Audit Office has published its report into Housing In England.
“The need for housing in England has in recent years grown faster than its supply, and housebuilding needs to increase across the country.The government has responded to this by putting in place a range of policies to increase housing supply and home ownership. Central to this is an ambition to increase the supply of housing by one million homes by 2020, largely through support to private housebuilders. Delivery of this target will not require a substantial increase in current levels of housebuilding.”
