Some of the specific changes we are consulting on are as follows:
- Including more analysis of Energy Performance Certificates data in the release and consider any other data sources which could be incorporated.
- Referring to the building control data wherever it is used, rather than referring to it only as housebuilding. This will make the source clear to users and aims to prevent any confusion across the range of housebuilding estimates.
- Within the release include analysis looking across the range of available indicators and use this to provide an early estimator of the final more robust housing supply statistics measure of new build.
- Changing the title of the release to ‘Housing supply; Indicators of new supply’. This title will better reflect the updated content of the release and give users clarity about what the best use for these statistics are.
