More cash for hous­ing needed

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

THE lack of fi­nance needed to build homes and buy homes is at the heart of the hous­ing cri­sis, say the Na­tional Fed­er­a­tion of Builders and the Fed­er­a­tion of Mas­ter Builders.

Ju­lia Evans, NFB chief ex­ec­u­tive, says: “We know that fi­nance is at the heart of our cur­rent dif­fi­cul­ties.

“Recog­ni­tion of that is a start, but we need so­lu­tions. The idea of putting fu­ture quan­ti­ta­tive eas­ing through lo­cal au­thor­i­ties is cer­tainly one which should be ex­plored.

“We need fi­nance to flow to where it is needed. Lo­cal au­thor­i­ties are at the coal­face of de­liv­er­ing the hous­ing we need and they are used to work­ing with smaller vol­ume builders to de­velop smaller sites.”
