House prices in the Meridian Region will rise by almost two thirds in the next decade - the steepest rise in the country. A new report from the National Housing Federation says they'll soar by sixty one per cent by 2022 - bringing the average house price from £285, 000 to over £458, 000.
The paper blames years of not building enough homes for the rise.
