Chancellor vows to build 300,000 homes a year
Chancellor Philip Hammond has announced plans to get 300,000 homes built a year in his Autumn 2017 Budget. Mr Hammond said fixing the housing market was a “crucial part” of ensuring Millennials are not the first generation since the Black Death to be less prosperous than their parents.
He promised the Government would do “whatever it takes” to get homes built including underwriting loans to small house builders if necessary.
He will also find around £44 billion for housing schemes in addition to abolishing stamp duty for first time buyers for properties valued under £300,000.
