The Home Building Fund provides lending through a number of vehicles including:

Directly to individual sites

Through a number of large investment funds (national)

Lending alliances (national)

Table 1, below, shows the number of homes completed in each local authority area and the proportion that are classed as additional.

Approximately 40 per cent of homes delivered through the Home Building Fund can be classed as additional supply.

The data that is provided for homes built through lending alliances and large investment funds is not provided at local authority level. Therefore, additional to the figures in the table below, a further 14,130 new homes have been built through these national vehicles. 5,652 of these homes would be classed as additional.

The data is based on projects that have been supported by the investment made through the Home Building Fund since its launch in October 2016.
