NHBC reports rise…
NHBC reports that news housing registrations continue to rise outperforming 2014 levels across the UK.
For the rolling quarter (February – April), registrations increased by 20% compared to the same period last year (41,307 in 2015; 34,451 in 2014). The private sector increased by 24% during this period (31,083 in 2015; 24,993 in 2014), with the public sector also up by 8% (10,224 in 2015; 9,458 in 2014).
NHBC Chief Executive Mike Quinton commented on the latest statistics saying “The very positive start to the year continues, with the growth in new home registrations unaffected by uncertainty ahead of the General Election, and so 2015 is likely to be another strong year.
“Now that the outcome of the General Election has been decided we look forward to continuing our work with government to ensure that housing remains at the top of the political agenda to help us get back to pre-recession building levels.”
