Public attitudes to housebuilding 07/06/2018 Labelled as Development

MHCLG have published findings from the British Attitudes Survey 2017 into public attitudes to house building.


In 2017 55% of respondents were supportive of new homes being built in their local area but 21% of respondents were opposed to new homes being built in their area. Although the proportion of people opposed to new homes in their area remained the same as in 2014 it is significantly less than in 2010 (46%).


Those opposed to new homes and those neither supportive nor opposed to new homes, when asked what would make them more supportive, cited amongst other things "more affordable homes to rent (from councils or housing associations)" and "more homes for low cost home ownership/shared ownership"


Given a free choice 88% of respondents said they would choose to buy a home whilst 11% said they would choose to rent.
