Housing

Volume 502: debated on Tuesday 8 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government what percentage of all households were in (a) private owner-occupied, (b) private rented and (c) social rented accommodation in each London local authority area in each of the last five years. (304516)

Figures are reported for dwellings and not households.

Local authorities report the number of private and total dwellings within their local authority area in their Housing Strategy Statistical Appendix returns. There is no distinction between owner-occupiers and private renters. Table 1 provides the percentage of all dwellings that were privately owned.

Additionally, local authorities also report the number of dwellings owned by local authorities and registered social landlords in their local authority area. Table 2 provides the percentage of all dwellings, within the social sector.

Total dwellings also include other public sector dwellings and therefore figures in tables 1 and 2 will not add to 100 per cent.
