The forecast is for over 91,000 homes to be built by 2031 and the article considers whether the required step-change in construction is possible in the context of the Government's Housing White Paper.
This is one of two articles produced by CIVIX on the topic of housing and is part of Hertfordshire LEP's response to the Government's Housing White Paper "Fixing our broken housing market".
This article reflects the views of Dan Bone of CIVIX and was produced for Hertfordshire LEP. It does not reflect the views of the LEP but its analysis, and any subsequent debate on the issues raised, are welcomed
We hope it stimulates thought and discussion on the issues at the heart of the Housing question.
