New Housing Starts

Young people in Dover and Deal who work hard and get on should be able to buy their own home.

It is great news that the number of new builds started in Dover and Deal in 2015 was 394, almost double the UK average of 222.

The trend continued this year, with 167 new homes started in the first two quarters of 2016.

The growth in housebuilding in Dover and Deal gives young people a greater chance of buying their first home.

This is despite the best efforts of the out-of-touch CPRE to thwart the building of new homes at Farthingloe. The CPRE have worked hard to stop the homes our young people need getting built. Yet we will continue to do all we can to build a Britain that works for our young people.

I want Dover and Deal to be a place where our bright young people want to live, work and raise a family. In order to build a Britain that works for everyone, it is vital the Government invests in places like Dover and Deal. That means creating good jobs and building enough new houses for people to live in.
