THE NUMBER of new homes registered to be built per year in the UK has risen by more than 80 per cent over the last decade, according to NHBC’s annual new homes statistics.

A total of 1.4million new homes were registered to be built across the UK between 2009 and 2019. These figures represent the first complete decade since the financial crash in 2007/08.

In 2019, 161,022 homes were registered with NHBC, an 81 per cent increase on the 88,849 homes registered a decade ago, making 2019 the strongest year for NHBC new home registrations since 2007.

Over the same period, the West Midlands has seen the highest percentage increase of new homes registered with a 169 per cent rise.
