Proposed changes: MHCLG consultation on house building statistics

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) is inviting users to comment on a proposal to change both the title and general focus of the long running
House building; new build dwellings statistics hereafter referred to as “house building statistics”.

Alongside the quarterly house building statistics the department publishes an annual release entitled ‘Housing supply: net additional dwellings’, hereafter referred to as “housing supply statistics”. The housing supply statistics are the primary and most comprehensive measure of housing supply.

The CIOB, in line with our views on the need for improved and more accurate data in the built environment is planning to respond.

A link to the consultation document is available:
MHCLG, House building; new build dwellings, England Consultation on proposed changes.
