Properties built across the UK
When it comes to the total number of homes started, the Labour party come out top during their nine year window, with a total of 1,354,897 homes started to the Conservatives 1,241,137.
They have seen more homes built across the North West, Yorkshire and the Humber, the East and West Midlands, the East of England and the South East, although the Conservatives did start more homes in the North East, London and the South West.

In the last nine years, the Conservatives have completed 1,211,230 homes, however, in the nine years before that, Labour completed 10.4% more homes (1,337,270), with a whitewash across every region of the England.
The vast majority of homes delivered by Labour were to the private sector, a whopping 86.7% in fact, with the party outperforming in almost every region of England and the Conservatives only delivering more homes through private enterprise in London during their nine years.
However, in perhaps a reversal of roles, the Conservatives have delivered far more homes to the housing association and local authority sectors in the last nine years, with Labour beating them in just one region on housing association delivery over the nine years previous – London
