Affordable Housing: Construction

Volume 504: debated on Thursday 28 January 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government how many affordable homes had been built as a result of each Housing Market Renewal Pathfinder at 1 April 2009; how many were planned to be built in each Pathfinder area in 2009-10; and how many additional affordable homes he now expects to be built as a result of the release of additional resources in July 2009. (313696)

I refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to him on 21 October 2009, Official Report, column 1503-1504W. Data differentiating affordable and private new build as a result of HMR funding are not yet held in a readily available format. The HMR programme particularly focuses on the refurbishment and renewal of existing stock and attracting developer interest to their areas, and it is for individual Pathfinders to decide on which activities to focus taking into account the stage of the regeneration process in their areas.
