Housing Statistics for Scotland Quarterly Update (published 24 September 2019)
This quarterly statistical publication provides information on recent trends in:
- New build housing starts and completions by sector (up to end Mar-19, with more up-to-date social sector information available up to end Jun-19)
- The Affordable Housing Supply Programme (up to end Jun-19). A new section has been added that compares how the level of affordable housing supply per head of population varies between Scotland and other UK countries, to help meet demand for cross country analysis on this.
Background information including Excel tables and an explanatory note on the Quarterly Housing Statistics can be found in the Housing Statistics webpages.
Separate annual information on total new housing supply in Scotland across all sectors (conversions and rehabilitations along with new build) is available in the separate Annual Housing Statistics for Scotland 2019: Key Trends Summary publication, which also includes information on various elements of local authority housing such as stock and lettings etc.
Chart 1: Annual all-sector new build starts and completions have both increased in the latest year, but are still below levels seen in 2007 and 2008 (years to end March)
