The Current State of New Build Properties 

Recent government reforms to the National Planning Policy Framework have shifted the focus towards making local housebuilding targets advisory rather than compulsory. The government's reform of the National Planning Policy Framework is a significant shift in housing policy. Local housebuilding targets, now advisory, has prompted local authorities to adapt their strategies. Housing Secretary Michael Gove's introduction of league tables to track local authorities' performance is a pivotal change. This approach aims to enhance transparency and accountability in meeting housing needs. This change, introduced to monitor local authorities' performance in planning permissions and housebuilding against their five-year plans while encouraging local plans and increased housing supply, has raised concerns regarding the delivery of necessary infrastructure and attention to the needs of an aging population and net-zero homes. 

Regional Disparities in New Build Completions 

Statistical analysis reveals a clear regional disparity in new build completions. There's a stark contrast in new-build completions across regions. London and the South East lead with a significant portion of completions, while areas like the North East and Yorkshire and the Humber lag behind. This uneven distribution underscores the challenges local authorities face in balancing regional development needs. London and the South East accounted for over a quarter of all new-build housing completions, peaking at 29% in 2017/18. This is significantly higher than the North East (4%) and Yorkshire and the Humber (7%). Such disparities highlight the uneven distribution of new housing developments across the UK.

Revitalisation through Brownfield Developments 

A promising development is the government's allocation of £57.8 million to councils for developing brownfield land into quality housing. This initiative aims to regenerate local areas by transforming derelict sites, with an expectation to build around 5,600 homes on these lands. This approach not only supports housing needs but also preserves green spaces and potentially supports up to 17,000 jobs in the housing and construction sectors.
