Time: 10:00 am - 10:45 am

Date: 28 November

Theatre: LIVE 2017

Synopsis

The industry needs to build an estimated 200,000 homes a year to meet demand, around 70,000 more than the current average. Meanwhile, an affordability crisis has seen the average price of first time homes rise by 12% over the past year. In response, the industry is investing in offsite technologies and private rented accommodation, while the government has promised a new generation of council house building. But how much progress is being made?
