We want to give a voice to the people who say YES, so more homes get built.

We connect supporters of new homes with the planning process,
particularly private and social renters, who are generally excluded.

The housing crisis is getting worse. Today, it will cost you at least seven times your salary to buy your first home. If you live in London, that rises to eleven times your salary.

The only way to change this is to build more homes.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

FACT

Four million people

in the UK live in sub-standard  accommodation

Since the 1970’s the population’s been growing but housebuilding has been in decline. The BBC now estimate we are 1.2 million homes short of what we need.

Why?

In the last 3 years alone, there have been almost 2 million objections to planning applications. That’s 80 every single hour. Meanwhile, a whole generation can’t afford to leave their childhood bedrooms and get on the housing ladder.

And there are real human consequences: it is estimated that around 320,000 people are homeless – living on the streets, sofa surfi ng or living in poor, temporary accommodation.

Most damningly, around 200,000 children do not have a permanent home.

The solution is obvious: stop arguing about the type of housing we build and just build more homes of all types.

But it’s going to take the silent majority who support housebuilding to make their voice heard.

DO

SOMETHING

Every time a new housing development is proposed, decision makers only ever hear from the vocal minority who oppose it.

The vast majority of people in the U.K support new housebuilding. So, we’re giving them a voice.

Our platform allows you to quickly and easily contribute to the offi cial process, by saying YES in the time it takes to fill out a form online. We will champion schemes near you that build more homes.

Because it’s only when ordinary people like you start saying YES to housing development in your area will more homes actually get built. It’s that simple

Because it’s only when ordinary people like you start saying YES to housing development in your area will more homes actually get built. It’s that simple.

But whenever there is a proposal anywhere in the country to build more homes, it’s the voices of existing homeowners that are the loudest. And they often want to say NO. Pulling up the housing ladder behind them.

So we came together to create Just Build Homes, to give a voice to YOU.

How we are funded

We started this off our own backs because we believe in it. But in order to make it truly effective, we need to get funding. So we’re working with companies and organisations in the housing and development sector who want to build more homes. We don’t discriminate between types of housing because we believe we just need to build more.

Dear Laura Trott,

The housing crisis means that people like me who want to own their home can’t. The pandemic has made things even tougher. There’s been a complicated debate about the causes, but it boils down to a simple fact: we’re not building enough homes.

The BBC estimate that we’re 1.2 million homes short of what we need to build in this country, just to keep up with demand. Until we build more, the dream of home ownership will remain out of reach.

But although most mainstream politicians say they back building more homes, when it comes to specific proposals in local areas they often back the minority of existing homeowners who object.

In fact, over the last three years, there have been almost 2 million objections to planning applications.

As your constituent, I want you to know that when new homes are proposed, for every NIMBY, there are many more like me who want to say YES to building.

Will you commit to helping first time buyers in Sevenoaks by supporting the building of new homes of all types?

Yours Sincerely,
