Management of Local Authority Housing

The management of local authority housing tables contain information on:

  • Lettings
  • Evictions
  • Housing Lists
  • Local Authority Vacant Stock

 

The lettings and evictions returns were issued to local authorities for completion each quarter, until the first quarter of 2007, when they became annual data collections, and they now form part of the Housing Statistics Annual Return.

Previously published quarterly tables for lettings and evictions are available on request to housingstatistics@scotland.gsi.gov.uk
