A supply too low to meet demand
For the metropolis of Lyon, the difficulties of building new housing are a real problem. Indeed, the territory gains each year between 12,000 and 13,000 new inhabitants, according to INSEE figures. The demand for housing, both for the transaction and for rental, is therefore a little higher each year. Market tension is growing a little more each year, as the construction of new housing is, for its part, a little lower each year.
According to the Federation of Promoters, 650 housing units were refused building permits between early 2020 and late April 2021. In addition, 3,200 other dwellings are subject to difficulties in obtaining a permit, half of which are to be built as the project promoters permanently lost, which represents 1600 dwellings that will not emerge from the ground in the months that follow. are coming.
The promoters of the Lyon region therefore insist on “the absolute need to relaunch the issuance of building permits by supporting the mayors who are builders and by encouraging those who are, if not not, to build in connection with the Metropolis and the State” . For the Lyon FPI, a supply shock would be necessary to “absorb the demographic growth of each municipality making up our agglomeration, globally regulate price increases”
