Registrations of social housing fall year on year

Social housing registrations are down 49 per cent, compared with last year, according to the National House Building Council

The number of public sector registrations to build new homes in the UK during the rolling quarter February to April 2012 was just 5,867, compared to 11,521 last year.

The NHBC figures show an overall 15 per cent drop in registrations from 30,649 last year to 26,035 this year.

Private housing registrations were up 5 per cent but this rises to 14 per cent if you discount the 2,800 Athletes’ Village properties registered one year ago.

Richard Tamayo of the NHBC said the social housing reduction could be a ‘hiatus as the industry moves from one funding model to another’.
