WDH Housebuilding trend19 March 2016

Published 19 March 2016
What goes around comes around - and I am not talking about the wheel! The new housing minister has delivered his maiden speech on housing policy. I am sure he feels, like most politicians today, that they are going into the boxing ring with one hand tied behind their back! Join the club.  Anything new in the speech? Oh yes, the government want to look at all tenures, not just home ownership. “Surprise, surprise!” our Cilla would have said. Is this Ms May's softer tone to reduce inequality alongside the grammar school policy for all at any age? No it's political gain to occupy the space left by Labour, as it moves further to the left. In techno speak; appealing to the C1/C2 voters! Who said politics was fair and not personal? Then the sting! Proposals have been released this week indicating sheltered housing schemes will be affected by the 1% rent cut from next year. Good news, they will not be affected by the local housing cap until 2019! How this will work has yet to be finalised (surprise, surprise again!) but it looks like local authorities will be copping for it again. As one of my esteemed political colleagues said, 'dividing nowt, by nowt, leaves nowt to share!'  In this week, where we seem to be seeing a change in position, WDH’s development programme has gone from strength to strength. The investment in new housing through the HCA is reaching £70 million and 500 units over next four years. However, if you look at the detail, building rented accommodation has dropped to zero! So Mr Barwell, you will have to put your money where your mouth is, or are our lips just moving and somebody else is speaking?  On a more positive note, how do they do it? Have you been watching the Paralympics? Wheelchair tennis. Magnificent.  Enjoy the extended summer!
