Statistics on house building in each English local authority are published on the Department for Communities and Local Government website in live table 253 at the following link.

http://www.communities.gov.uk/housing/housingresearch/housingstatistics/housingstatisticsby/housebuilding/livetables/

The Department does not forecast levels of overall house building.

From 1 April 2012, the Mayor of London has had oversight of strategic housing, regeneration and economic development in London. The Mayor has clearly stated that over the next three years he anticipates delivering 55,000 affordable homes within London. Within the settlement letter agreed between this Department and the Greater London authority we are expecting them to deliver 36,000 affordable homes by March 2015.
