New­build num­bers ris­ing steadily

Yorkshire Post - Property - - STRUTT & PARKER -

The num­ber of new build homes in York­shire is im­prov­ing but still be­low nor­mal lev­els, ac­cord­ing to RICS. The Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors says that while the num­ber of new homes be­ing built in the re­gion is im­prov­ing, there is still a long way to go to reach pre-credit crunch lev­els.

The lat­est house build­ing data from the Govern­ment’s Depart­ment of Com­mu­ni­ties and Lo­cal Govern­ment, re­veals that the num­ber of new home starts in York­shire rose in the first three months of the year to 1,740. That is up from 1,450 in the last quar­ter of 2009 and bet­ter than any pe­riod since the sec­ond quar­ter of 2008, when 2,540 homes were started.
