Additional affordable housing supply

 

Introduction

 

The Home & Communities Agency is responsible for delivery of the government's affordable housing programme that aims to enhance the supply of new affordable homes in England. New affordable homes are additional housing units or bed spaces provided to specified eligible households whose needs are not met by the market. Affordable housing includes new build and acquisitions, but the figures do not take into account losses through demolitions or sales. Annex 2 of the National Planning Policy Framework contains a definition of affordable housing.
 
The figures in table 1 have been published by the Department for Communities and Local Government (CLG) table 1011.
 

The national and Lancashire results 

 
National and regional trends for affordable housing provision are published in a series of yearly reports. For 2014/15, a total of 66,640 affordable homes were delivered in England, a substantial 55% more than the previous financial year.  
 
Table 1 reveals an additional supply of 1,265 affordable homes in the Lancashire-14 area for 2014/15. This was 50% more than the result for 2013/14. At the local authority level, Chorley has recorded the highest number of affordable homes in Lancashire in four of the past five years. The latest results for 2014/15 reveal that it was one of five Lancashire authorities that had figures in excess of 100.

Source: Communities and Local Government (CLG) table 1011. Table 1011 includes breakdowns by type of affordable home for each authority. Table 1008 provides a long time series of additional affordable dwellings per authority, rounded to the nearest 10. 

Information on housing tenure from the 2011 census indicates that social renting accounted for 12.6% of tenures in the Lancashire 14-authority area. A 2013 figure from DCLG states that 10% of Lancashire tenures are from registered (non-council) social landlords.
