Council Housing: Repairs and Maintenance

Volume 485: debated on Monday 15 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many housing repairs were undertaken by each local authority in each of the last five years; and how much each authority spent on such repairs. (240797)

The Department has collected data on local authority programmes of work through the Business Plan Statistical Appendix (BPSA) since 2001-02. The information held includes the following two categories covering a broad range of activity:

renovation work of a capital nature (installation, replacement and major repair)—we are unable to provide figures for major repairs separately;

renovation work of a non-capital nature (minor repairs/routine maintenance).

Two tables with information for the last five years (2002-03 to 2006-07) have been deposited in the Library.
