Affordable housing supply: latest figures to March 2015 10/12/2015

The latest figures on affordable housing supply for 2014/2015 show a 55% increase in the supply of affordable homes. A total of 66,640 affordable homes were provided in England in 2014/2015, compared to 42,720 affordable homes supplied in 2013/2015.


The current definition of affordable housing includes social rented, affordable rented and intermediate rent and affordable home ownership schemes, provided to specified eligible households whose needs are not met by the market.


This includes new build and acquisitions from the private sector that have been purchased for use as an affordable home, however it does not take account of losses through demolitions or sales.


The overall affordable housing supply in 2015/2015 exceeded 60,000 per year for the first time since 2010/2011 when 60,480 affordable homes were supplied. 


Affordable rented supply increased from 19,740 in 2013/2014 to 40,710 in 2014/2015 but the number of social rented homes supplied fell from 10,920 to 9,590 over the same period.


Full details are available in the statistical release published by the Department of Communities and Local Government.
