New residential construction in the UK 2005-2020, per quarter

New home construction in the United Kingdom increased in 2020, following a recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. However, due to COVID-19 the 2020 figures are not complete. Nevertheless, the figures for England reveal a slight y-o-y decrease between the third quarter of 2019 and the third quarter of 2020. 2021 is believed to see little growth in house prices, followed by a gradual recovery up until 2024. Prices in the North West region, North East, Yorkshire & the Humber, and Scotland are forecast to bounce back quicker than house prices in other UK regions.

New housing starts in the United Kingdom (UK) from the 1st quarter of 2005 to the 3rd quarter of 2020

Special properties

The supply of house building data has been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Not all countries have been able to produce data for more recent quarters, making the data for 2020 incomplete. More information is believed to release in early 2021.

Supplementary notes

The figures provided are from the four UK governments. Originally, this information stems from the UK Statistical Office but this source did not supply new figures since April 2020 - citing delays in some of the UK countries. To reveal newer 2020 figures, the figures were compiled by Statista from the following sources:

A home is counted as “started” on the date work begins on the laying of the foundation, and as “completed” when it becomes ready for occupation or when a completion certificate is issued.
