Brownfield land could provide one million homes

Written by CPRE

We need to build many more homes in England. The number of homes being built is at an historic low. In 2015-2016, 189,500 new homes were built. While this is an increase on previous years, it is still far below the 250,000 projected annual growth in households for that year.

England faces a housing crisis. We agree there is a need to deliver more homes, but it is essential that these homes are the right types of homes and are in the right places.
