Attitude to New Home Developments
Property Wire reports “the majority of people are supportive of more homes being built in their local area with 57% doing so and just 23% being opposed to the developments, according to the latest British Social Attitudes survey.
The survey, run annually by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) and published by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG), reveals that support for homes being built increased between 2010 and 2014 and has remained stable ever since.
But it also shows that attitudes have become more polarised. The proportion of people who strongly support homes being built in the local area increased from 14% in 2017 to 18% in 2018, whilst the proportion of people strongly opposing more homes being built in the local area increased from 5% in 2017 to 6% in 2018.” Read more
