The British housing market has suffered considerably from the 2008 financial crisis and subsequent recession in the economy, which, in effect, contributed to the stagnation in this sector during 2008-2009.

Chief Executive Officer of Taylor Wimpey Pete Redfern also supported the plans of the Government.
"In combination with the alleged beneficial sustainable development, which is drawn based on the current budget, this is a potential for increasing the volume of construction as-needed new homes in the coming years" - he said.
"As one of the nation's largest landlords, the government plays a crucial role in providing developers of the areas under construction on the needs of the state" - said Minister of Housing of Great Britain Grant Shepps.
