Social Housing

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 1 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many affordable housing units (a) built and (b) procured through the Housing Corporation National affordable Housing Programme in 2005-06 were (i) mixed funded social rented housing, (ii) temporary social rented housing, (iii) homebuy general market purchase, (iv) homebuy general new build, (v) mixed funded low cost home ownership for sale, (vi) miscellaneous works to registered social landlord (RSL) stock, (vii) reimprovements to rented RSL stock, (viii) works only rehabilitation of rented RSL stock, (ix) works only rehabilitation of RSL stock for sale, (x) intermediate rent for key workers, (xi) homebuy market purchase for key workers, (xii) homebuy new build for key workers, (xiii) mixed funded sale for key workers and (xiv) starter home initiative in the north-east region in each year since 1997-98; and how much was spent on each category. (98592)

The following table shows completions, new build and procured, through the Housing Corporation affordable housing programme (formerly the approved development programme), for categories from (i) to (ix).

The key worker living programme is limited to London and the wider south-east, therefore there are no completions in the north-east region.

1 Shared Ownership completions from 1997-98 to 2005-06. In 2006-08 programme allocation for New Build HomeBuy.

Notes:

1. Miscellaneous works, re-improvements to rented RSL stock, works only rehabilitation of rented RSL stock and works only rehabilitation of RSL stock for sale are not recorded as completed dwellings as they may have previously received funding and would therefore be double counted.

2. Figures for 2006-08 are based on the Housing Corporation's Allocation Statement for the North East following approval of their 2006-08 Affordable Housing Programme.
