That's only four times the number of houses being built annually. Is it unusual to have a pipeline of four years worth of supply for future building or is it sensible planning? I have no clue and the article doesn't say, so it's not a very useful factoid without some background.

I was thinking that seems high for Ireland. But only UK data in article.

Least we forget the government can increase the supply of zoned land with the stroke of a pen.

Or indeed the number of houses that can be built on currently zones land.

I`m more appalled by how few businesses/individuals hold control over entire cities like Dublin, London or Sydney.
In 'capitalist' economies..............

I live in a 7 story block practically on Mr Ross' doorstep (or certainly within what one might refer to as his "back yard"). Just have to get the planning permission through while he's napping, I think.

The story is a bit silly.

From conception to completion any housing project probably takes three years now.

Why wouldn't builders have a pipeline of four years?
