Deliver half a million homes between 2021 and the end of 2022

We will meet our 2015 commitment to deliver a million homes by the end of 2020 and we will deliver half a million more by the end of 2022.

Our Verdict

In its 2015 manifesto, the Conservative Party promised to deliver a million new homes by 2020. The current government pledged to honour that promise (covered by this policy) and committed to a further half a million new homes by the end of 2022 (that’s this policy).

In February 2017, the then government commissioned a consultation to investigate how best to carry out its housing policies, which included advice on how to reach their target on house-building quotas. The current government’s 2018 Spring Statement announced a £44 billion investment into housing to help the construction of new houses, as well as discussing bids by local authorities for funding from the Housing Infrastructure Fund, which aims to deliver up to 100,000 new homes through increased building infrastructure.

However, as the government is currently working on its policy to deliver a million new homes by 2020 and is not due to start work on this separate policy objective until after that deadline, we are marking this policy as ‘not started’.
