The NHBC latest report into registrations of new plots in quarter three give mixed reports.

Although the headline figure is new registrations are down 5% once you disseminate the report there are some positives that came out of it.

Firstly, as many articles on the subject have highlighted, post brexit vote, registrations have been up.  

This quarter the south east region is in fact up some 56%, closely followed by the north west at 48%.  Great news for the governments conscious decision to release brownfield land and the northern powerhouse push to boot.

To my mind however, most importantly, is the increase in affordable housing plots, up 18% this quarter alone.  Good news for the governments Housing & Planning Minister Brandon Lewis and his push to allow small builders to build without the usual shackles associated with costs.
