“The only thing we can be certain of this year is more uncertainty. Unfortunately, Covid and Brexit will linger and continue to affect the cost and availability of labour and materials.
“To overcome this uncertainty, industry must continue to embrace change, stay agile and focus on opportunities with maximum growth potential. Housebuilding in England fell by 11% in 2020-21.
“SMEs are best placed to address this in 2022 by bringing forward smaller sites that are more efficient to turn around. Research we commissioned found restoring SME developers to historic levels of supply would bring 55,000 extra new homes – with a value approaching £20bn – forward each year.
“We are tipping ambitious SME developers to continue to grow in 2022 and will do our best to support them.”
