Between March and May 2011, new homes registered totalled 32,562 compared with 32,352 in the same period the previous year. According to the Chief Executive at NHBC, “A shred of optimism is seeping back into the industry”.
This is certainly backed up by award winning developers, Hillreed Homes which in 2010 had eleven sites on its books and this year has a total of 19.
