It is fantastic news that more and more new homes are being built in our area. New developments such as the garden village in Aylesham are helping to provide homes for local people. We are getting on with building the homes we need and bringing the opportunity of a new starter home to our young people.
Figures released by the National House-Building Council that show 395 new homes were started to be built in the Dover area in 2015, up from only 208 new home starts in 2014. These figures come as part of a 7% year-on-year-increase with new home registrations across the country, and 75% more new homes being registered in 2015 than in 2009, nationwide.
Government schemes such as Help To Buy are helping buyers to be able to afford their own home. Home ownership offers families security and stability, so the more people we help to buy their own home the better.
