The Goal to Build over 35,000 New Homes won’t be Met without Change

The Construction Industry Federation has taken aim at any bureaucratic process which adds cost, and then delays the delivery of any public or private constructions. The goal to build over 35,000 new homes every year won't be achieved in the lifetime of this current government unless a significant level of change is made. The lobby group for construction has stated this in their pre-budget submission

At the end of the day, it can take construction companies as little as 16 weeks to build a house, and it only takes years to construct motorways too. Most of the time, it takes time to move from a concept to completion and as a result, the range of suggestions includes changes to public procurement and even measures to support private housing in demand as well. The CIF have called upon the government to see if they are able to secure 15 billion euros from the EU fund as this will help them to bolster the national development plan. The introduction of shared equity for private homes and even extensions for expiry dates will also be taken into account as this will make sure that development permissions are not lost due to any Covid-19 disruptions.

The current system, which involves multiple bureaucratic objectives will add cost and then delay to the delivery of public and private construction. This comes from the Construction Industry Federation, chief, Tom Parlon. Those who work in Construction jobs or even in Construction recruitment will feel this the most. Other major problems include the slow pace at improving the general connectivity in the region as well as dealing with any blockages or housing output improvements.

Only time will tell if changes are made, but right now, things need to shift quickly.
