The affordable housing starts and completions of unknown tenure are all reported to the department by the Greater London Authority (GLA) as part of their affordable housing statistics https://www.london.gov.uk/what-we-do/housing-andland/increasing-housing-supply/affordable-housing-statistics.

The GLA has reported that due to transitional changes in implementing the GLA's new project management system the tenure information for some schemes within GLA programmes will be updated in the quarterly publications until transitional system changes are complete.

The Department will continue to work with the GLA and when they finalise the information on tenure type of these units it will be updated and included in our statistics.
