Sheffield Housing Crisis, First New Council Houses Built for Rent in 30 Years!

Britain continues to experience a worsening housing crisis as annual demand for 400,000 new builds far out strips supply of barely 140,000, which keeps ratcheting up the crisis each year. Sheffield as is the case for most UK cities has seen its safety net of council properties for rent evaporate from a housing stock of over 80,000 30 years ago, most of which have been sold off at deep discounts under the right to buy scheme to now stand at under 40,000 council properties for rent.
