New homes

Housing associations build thousands of good quality new homes a year for sale, for rent, and for affordable home ownership.

They built one in every five homes over the last parliament, and they have an ambition to build much more, making a major contribution to ending the housing crisis.

The external operating environment, particularly the cut to social rents, has made developing new homes more difficult for housing associations, but their ambition remains strong. They are committed to working with the Government and local powers to deliver the new homes the country needs.
