Housing supply in 2017/18: where do we stand?

16 Nov 2018

Latest house building figures show 222,194 additional dwellings were completed from April 2017 to March 2018, up 2.2% from 217,345 in 2016/17. This marks the highest level of house building for a decade, and just 1,340 shy of the 2007/8 peak on the eve of the global recession.

Lichfields' latest interactive guide has been produced to:

  • help you navigate the new net additions figures published by MHCLG;
  • consider what the latest data on housing completions tells us about the make-up of house building across England, and how this is affected by certain planning considerations; and
  • at a local authority level, how closely current housing delivery rates will meet the Housing Delivery Test now and in 2020.
