Local housing delivery

Key points

  • Southwark and Hackney delivered more affordable homes than any other borough at 1,500 each. At the other end of the scale Redbridge only delivered 110 additional affordable homes. But in the same period it also delivered almost 1,400 market properties so affordable housing only accounted for 10% of net completions in the borough.
  • Barking and Dagenham and Brent delivered the highest proportion of affordable homes with almost half of net-completions being affordable (49% and 48% respectively). Hammersmith & Fulham delivered 280 intermediate homes but the number of properties available for social/affordable rent in the borough actually fell by 6 as more were demolished or converted to a different tenure than were built.

Local housing delivery

What does this graph show?

The graph shows the number of additional homes delivered in each borough in the three years to 2013/14 by tenure. Individual councils have a target number of additional homes to deliver each year, though the share of which should be affordable varies from borough to borough based on local needs assessments.
