The Government is committed to increasing the supply of new homes, including affordable housing, so we can meet our target of 300,000 new homes a year.

As has been the case under successive administrations, it is for local authorities to set out their plans to address housing need in their areas, including how much of that should be for affordable housing. Our £11.5 billion Affordable Homes Programme will deliver tens of thousands of affordable homes.

Data on new affordable housing, including social rent and affordable rent, is collected and published by financial year, and collected by local authority rather than parliamentary constituency. Figures and detail are available here.
