As a Councillor on a Planning Committee and Non Executive Director of a Housing Association I often hear “Why are we building all these houses?” and “Why do we need so many affordable houses?” The chart clearly shows we are building fewer and fewer houses and prices are rising beyond anyone’s affordability.These two factors are clearly linked and a simple question of supply and demand.  Across the country housing waiting lists are growing and we need to start to tackle this need with imaginative development and building of even more social and private housing.
