In West Midlands:

  • Just 42% of the houses needed for local families across the region are being built
  • The number of families on the West Midlands’s housing waiting lists has increased by 64% in the last ten years
  • The average house price in West Midlands has more than doubled in the last ten years from £67,000 to £147,000
  • West Midlands’s current low levels of house-building mean that the region is missing out on around £50million of annual Government investment and the creation of more than 16,000 local jobs
