Housing statistics quarterly update: March 2022

A summary of activity in new build housing, affordable housing and long term empty properties and second homes in Scotland.


1. The most recent quarterly figures for Northern Ireland and England have been sourced from Land and Property Services (LPS) in Northern Ireland and the MHCLG Live tables on housing supply.

2. The most recent figures are accessed through the UK House Price Index: data downloads September 2021.

3. The quarterly percentage change figures between Apr-Jun 2020 and Apr-Jun 2021 have been excluded from this table due to the small numbers of starts and completions in Apr-Jun 2020 in some categories. For the categories that have been less affected by small numbers, total social starts increased by 119% and housing association approvals dropped by 19% between Apr-Jun 2020 and Apr-Jun 2021.
