6.1 Housing.

The government is determined to fix the broken housing market, and restore the dream of home ownership for a new generation. In England, average house prices are now almost 8 times the average workers salary; in parts of the West Midlands, they are over 9 times; in London, they are nearly 12 times.65 Despite the governments support for home ownership – such as helping over 320,000 people through the Help to Buy schemes – home ownership rates have declined.66 This is especially true for young people, for whom home ownership has fallen by 20% since 2003-04.67
