To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, what assessment he has made of recent trends in the level of the Community Housing Fund on the rate of build of community housing.
The Community Housing Fund is delivered outside London by Homes England and within London by the Greater London Authority (GLA). Prior to the Community Housing Fund delivery programmes being launched in Summer 2018, data on the delivery of community-led housing was not routinely collected by the Government.
Data collected by stakeholder groups indicates that the sector delivered approximately 400 homes in 2016. The most recent data from Homes England (February 2020) and the GLA (November 2019) indicates that community groups applying for support from the Community Housing Fund propose to build a total of 12,292 homes. In 2019 MHCLG, working with Homes England and the GLA, identified a potential delivery pipeline of 16,700 community-led homes over the next few years.
