The One Public Estate programme has recently begun to collect data on homes that have been built on land released through the programme. A summary of the current data we hold is set out below.

The One Public Estate programme is assisting local OPE partnerships to record and evidence where homes have been delivered. As partnerships improve their data gathering process we expect to see an increase in data across all years.

As the planning process and construction pipeline to build homes is not immediate upon the release of land, there is an inevitable time lag between the two data sets above.
