New study reveals the local authorities with the highest number of new builds

A new study by 24housing.co.uk has revealed that Stratford-on-Avon had the most completed new builds in the UK from 2020 to 2023.

The study examined building completion rates in various local authorities across the UK between 2020 and 2023 and compared them to the population of each local authority to determine the number of builds completed per 10,000 people.

Stratford-on-Avon took first place with 283.9 new buildings completed per 10,000 population, reflecting a concerted effort to meet the growing demands of its populace. The total number is 3,860 houses compared to its population of 135,964. The area, renowned for its historic charm and cultural significance, comprises the town of Stratford-upon-Avon, globally famous for its association with William Shakespeare, which makes it a popular location for tourists and given the surge in builds, also among people who want to relocate and buy a house in the area.

Second was South Derbyshire, which follows closely behind, with 3,000 builds completed, translating to 277.6 new houses per 10,000 population. The region’s strategic location and robust economic infrastructure contribute to its attractiveness for developers and residents.

Mid Suffolk ranked third on the list, with 2,670 builds completed between 2020 and 2023. This translates to 258.2 builds per 10,000 population.
