Homes England Housebuilding Statistics 2021-22 08/07/2022 Labelled as Development

Homes England has announced statistics for homes started and completed under its various programmes in 2021-22. These do not include London which is the responsibility of the GLA. Housing programmes delivered by Homes England resulted in 38,436 new houses starting on-site and 37,164 houses completed between 1 April 2021 and 31 March 2022, as the sector began to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.


  • Proportion of affordable homes started and completed was up on the previous year
  • Increase in both starts and completions a result of a recovery in housebuilding activity following the slowdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • The number of homes for social rent started and completed remains low.


Three-quarters (72 per cent) of starts (27,509) were for affordable homes. 5,606 were for Affordable Rent. There were 4,778 starts under schemes including Shared Ownership and Rent to Buy. 15,144 starts were defined as 'Affordable Tenure TBC' homes, where the ultimate tenure category is not known until completion. The remaining 1,981 were for Social Rent, a 23 per cent decrease on the previous year.


Of the housing completions, 26,485 (71 per cent) were for affordable homes, which is an 11 per cent increase on the previous year; of these, 13,929 were for Affordable Rent, an increase of 5 percent on the previous year, and 9,479 under Intermediate Affordable Housing schemes. The remaining 3,077 were Social Rent completions, up 62 per cent on the previous year.
