Wake up and smell the roses Jake Berry

Jake Berry, parliamentary private secretary to housing minister still believes that 230,000 homes per year will be built by 2015, despite the fact that in the year to June 2011 only 107,210 homes were built.  He delivered this unbelievable statement to the Housing Market Intelligence conference.

Professor Michael Benfield of the Benfield ATT Group wonders how on earth this can possibly be achieved when the banks refuse to lend to anyone in the building sector and planning authorities are not embracing any of the Government Housing Policy reforms.

Mr. Berry does caveat his remarks by admitting that this may not be achievable if the Government have to dilute the National Planning Policy or insufficient public land comes through the system.

Nothing like covering your back is there?
