Table of Contents

The 12th edition of this report reviews the UK housebuilding market, and should be of particular interest to private housebuilders, developers, housing associations, local authorities, private and social housing contractors and their supply chains. In 2015, low interest rates and low unemployment, rising incomes and high consumer confidence have all helped underpin the strongest trading conditions for the housebuilding sector for a number of years. The referendum decision to leave the EU has resulted in some economic uncertainty and housebuilders are likely to remain cautious in the short term, which may result in a lower level of housing starts.

Key sections covered:

- Market overview - structure and size of the UK Housebuilding market in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - in terms of housing stock, housebuilding targets, performance, starts and completions.
- Government policy for housing - e.g. Housing & Planning Bill.
- A review of the housebuilders – overall market performance, market shares and company profiles.
- Forecast of annual housebuilding - starts and completions to 2020-21.
- Analysis and discussion of the potential impact of the EU Referendum results on the housing market.

Key areas of insight include:

- While housing completions have increased significantly between 2013 and 2015, they still remain significantly below the pre-recession peak of 218,000.
- Review of Government measures to increase housebuilding rates including plans for 200,000 starter homes and 135,000 shared ownership homes.
- Review of planning reforms set out in the Housing and Planning Bill, which aims to release more publicly-owned land for starter homes and facilitate housing development on brownfield sites.
- Review of the impact of Help to Buy on the house-building market, which has been credited with a recent increase in housing starts and is now being extended to 2021.
- Analysis of the use of Build-to-Rent as a means of increasing housing supply.
- Analysis of key constraints to housing development including delays in the planning system, the problem of land supply and availability and the lack of skilled labour in the construction industry.
- Analysis of leading UK housebuilders and developers: activities, completion levels, future strategies and development pipelines.
- Smaller builders continue to struggle to secure funding and this is restricting the scale of projects undertaken.

Key areas covered in the report include:


- Housebuilding targets and market performance – housing starts, completions and forecasts from 2011-2020. The impact of the EU referendum on the housing sector and other key market influences..
