In March 2021, the Government announced a package of flexibilities to how local authorities can spend their Right to Buy receipts including allowing replacements to be delivered as Shared Ownership or First Homes. This will help local authorities to build the types of home that they think are most needed in their communities. As part of these reforms, information ​will be collected from local authorities on whether Right to Buy replacements are delivered as Affordable Rent, Social Rent, First Homes or Shared Ownership. This information will be published as official statistics annually from Summer 2022.
