Notes:

1. The Thames Gateway comprises of parts of 16 local authorities.

2. Figures are as reported by the local authorities and the National House-Building Council.

Where local authorities submitted no P2 returns for one or more quarters, no figure has been presented in the quarter or annual total as presenting NHBC information only would under-report the true level of house building completions in the local authority.

3. For social rent new build:

The figures exclude acquisitions

The figures are shown by the location LA, not by funding LA.

Figures are rounded to the nearest 10 because they can include imputation for missing returns.

2007-08 figures are not available, so have been estimated based on the trend in the registered Social Landlord new build completions between 2006-07 and 2007-08 (Castle Point, Southend-on Sea, Greenwich, Newham, Swale and Medway could not be estimated)

Sources:

Private enterprise:

New build completions from P2 monthly and quarterly returns submitted by local authorities and the National House-Building Council to CLG.

Social rent:

Social Housing completion figures are Social Rent New Build figures from the Housing Corporation Investment Management System (IMS) and HSSA and P2 returns submitted to CLG by local authorities.
