The report is here Residential Land and Planning 2012
Developers are reporting that the availability of debt for land purchase and development has deteriorated rapidly in recent months, with implications for housing delivery.
The industry does not anticipate significantly increasing delivery in response to planning reforms, but has higher hopes for the government’s NewBuy Guarantee scheme.
Land values appear stable in much of the country, with the exception of London, where competition for sites continues to drive prices upwards.
Developers active in the North and Midlands are more positive about future land availability, despite the fact that the need for housing, and the viability of development, is strongest in London and the South.
