Information on new house building activity by tenure, in London, between 2004-05 and 2006-07 is set out in the following tables. The figures on total and local authority dwellings are as reported from building control inspections by local authorities and the National Housebuilding Council. The figures on registered social landlords (RSLs) are based on information from the Housing Corporation and refer to new social rent only and exclude acquisitions and intermediate (e.g. low cost home ownership) housing.

The two sources are not directly comparable which means that timing differences may result in the RSL dwellings exceeding the total dwellings for some years in particular authorities.
