Communities secretary Sajid Javid says that "ready to go" homes – from factory built to custom-made apartment blocks – will be a key component of his imminent Housing White Paper as he looks for new schemes to hit the government’s housing target. The communities secretary went on a fact-fi nding mission in the Netherlands and Germany to examine a new generation of prefab homes.
"These are made-to-measure, ready-made, readyto-go modern stylish homes and if Germany can do it and other countries can do it I think they can be an important part of what we can deliver in UK,” he said.
