Figures for parts of the UK outside England are a matter for the relevant devolved administration.

In the year to June 2014, English local planning authorities gave permission for 230,000 new homes.

The Department does not collect figures for the numbers of homes given planning permission at local authority level. It does, however, collect figures on the numbers of residential planning applications decided and granted by each local planning authority. They are published in the Department's live tables P136 (annual) and P135 (quarterly), which are available at the following link:
