2010-19 Least Housebuilding since Second World War

Every decade since the Second World War has seen fewer new homes built than the last - with the 2010s being no exception, according to Robert Colville, Director of the Centre for Policy Studies (CPS) who has reported his findings in The Daily Telegraph.

Although efforts are being made by the government to address the housing crisis, the new homes built for this decade is set to be approximately £130,000, short of the £147,000 and £150,000 in the 2000s and 1990s, respectively.
