Britain’s lack of housing can’t meet soaring migration numbers

The number of liveable housing in the UK can’t meet the demand of thousands of migrants entering the UK every year, a think tank finds.

It is projected that an estimate of 1 million migrants have entered the United Kingdom, according to net migration numbers. A think tank study has found that the UK’s current plan of building 300,000 houses each year is simply not enough for the record number of people in the UK. In fact, the study shows that the UK government will have to double that number and then some.

Despite this staggering number, over the past year the UK government has failed to meet it’s projected target of 300,000 new homes, managing to build 252,540 instead. With growing migration number pushing house prices up coupled with the cost of living crisis, these statistics are worrying many across the nation as purse strings tighten, and accommodation becomes scarce.

If you have any questions about your British Citizenship application, our team is happy to assist.

As the United Kingdom boasts one of the best countries globally for schooling and university education, it is no wonder that net migration numbers increase each year due to overseas students, as well as providing support for the Ukrainian refugee crisis and more.

The official statistics for net migration are set to be released on Thursday by the Office of National Statistics (ONS), and many Britons are being swept up in the long political discourse over immigration which seems to be coming to a head in recent months.

Even cutting migration, as Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has pledged to do, claiming he will ‘cut net migration in half’, would still have enormous pressure on UK housing as 421,500 new homes would still be needed per year to accommodate the high demand. With the current figure of only 252,540 homes being built in the last calendar year alone, Mr Sunak’s statement would need reconsideration.
