Against a backdrop of housing undersupply, some areas are rocketing up in their new building development.
Newham, undergoing regeneration, leads the rankings with 2,080 dwellings started in 2022–2023 and 1,490 completed in the same time frame.
Cornwall and Wiltshire were next, with a dazzling 2,040 new homes started each, blazing well above the England and Wales average of 530 per district.
Roughly 14 million people attend organised firework displays annually, and 7% host their own private display. Bonfire night and Diwali celebrations are a chance to watch the spectacular light shows and bring communities together.
