The latest statistics on affordable housing starts and completions managed by the Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) and the Greater London Authority (GLA) were released on 12 June 2014.
The figures show the supply of homes delivered under the following programmes:
- Accelerated Land Disposal programme
- Affordable Homes Guarantees programme
- 2011 to 2015 Affordable Homes Programme (including the Affordable Homes Programme, Empty Homes, Homelessness Change, Mortgage Rescue, Short Form Agreements and Traveller Pitch Funding)
- Care and Support Specialised Housing programme
- Economic Assets programme
- Get Britain Building programme
- Kickstart Housing Delivery programme
- National Affordable Housing Programme
- Right to Buy replacements
- Property and Regeneration programme
Details about these programmes can be found in the HCA housing statistics release.
The main points were:
- in 2013 to 2014, there were 41,654 affordable housing starts on site delivered in England through programmes managed by the HCA and the GLA; this represents an increase of 15% compared to the 36,090 started in 2012 to 2013
- in 2013 to 2014, there were 36,352 affordable housing completions delivered through programmes managed by the HCA and the GLA; this represents a decrease of 1% compared to the 36,733 completed in 2012 to 2013
Information on the number of affordable homes delivered under the HCA affordable housing programmes is published twice a year. From April 2012, the Mayor of London has had strategic oversight of housing, regeneration and economic development in London. This means that the HCA no longer publish affordable housing starts and completions for London and this responsibility has been taken over by the GLA.
The Department for Communities and Local Government combines data from the HCA and the GLA to publish 6 monthly affordable housing starts and completions delivered nationally under the affordable housing programmes of the HCA and GLA.
