Redistributing or matching the £4bn that is to be spent on the Houses of Parliament renovation to help with the UK’s housing deficit, could build 40,000 three-bed houses, housing 121,000 of the UK’s homeless, research finds.

Some cities could have their entire population housed. These cities include:

However, due to their smaller populations, some towns in the UK could have their towns housed four times over. These towns are listed below:

Government figures show that since 2010, 430,000 affordable homes have been built. Although, Shelter, the UK housing charity, states that there are still around 320,000 homeless in the UK, with more than half of these people being in London.

Ben Lloyd, Managing Director of Pure Commercial Finance said:

“We deal with professional developers every day and we are well-aware of the demand for affordable housing across the UK and the influence that Brexit is having on borrowing.

“Although we would never suggest cancelling the refurbishment of such a prized national monument, we were shocked to see how matching the refurbishment budget could help towards solving the deficit.”

Polly Neate, CEO of housing charity Shelter, has also commented on this by saying:

“It is unforgiveable that 320,000 people in the UK have been swept up by the housing crisis and now have no place to call home. These new figures show that homelessness is having a devastating impact on the lives of people right across the country.”

Since 2010, 430,000 affordable homes have been built, according to Government figures. However, Shelter have said that there are still sadly 320,000 people homeless in the UK, with 170,000 of these being in London alone.
