Number of affordable houses built in England this year could see 65% slump says National Housing Federation

The National Housing Federation have released a statement detailing their concern over proposed Government cuts and changes to the planning system, suggesting that the number of affordable homes built in England this year could slump by 65% to just 20,390. Money already pledged for new projects has been threatened by withdrawal, budgets have been cut and dramatic changes have been made to the planning system.

Recently, the Government announced its intention to cut the budget for the National Affordable Housing Programme by £100m, resulting in plans for 1,453 social homes being axed. The NHF have noted that England is currently facing a record demand for affordable homes with 4.5m people on waiting lists, however if the predicted 65% slump does ring true, the country will see the lowest annual total of affordable homes built since 1990/91.
