Rented Housing: Hampshire

Volume 487: debated on Wednesday 4 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many families in Hampshire were tenants of (a) council, (b) housing association and (c) privately-owned accommodation allocated by local authorities (i) in 2006-07, (ii) in 2007-08 and (iii) at the latest date for which figures are available. (251094)

Information is collected at household level rather than by family. Local authorities in England report information for numbers of local authority owned (council) dwellings as at 1 April in their annual Housing Strategy Statistical Appendix (HSSA) returns.

Table 1 as follows provides estimates for numbers of local authority owned dwellings in Hampshire for (i) 2007 and (ii) 2008. The most recent figures are for 2008.
