Guildford has most expensive housing in the country – we need to build more homes

A survey of wages and house prices for all parts of the UK has shown that Guildford is the least affordable place to buy a home in the whole country. The survey showed the average home now costs 7 times the average salaries of couples in the town, meaning buying a new home is impossible for most people. And renting is no solution either, as the survey also showed that Guildford is more expensive to rent than anywhere else except London.

Labour across Surrey has always campaigned for more homes to rent and buy at affordable prices. This shocking survey shows that Tory councils across the county have failed the people who live here by not delivering the homes we need.
