How many homes did housing associations build in 2017-18?

This briefing details the number of homes housing associations developed in 2017/18.

27 June 2018

Our members completed 41,556 homes which is a 9% increase compared to the previous year. This is a great result and is well over our ambition to deliver target of increasing supply by 6% each year.

However, our members started 43,572 homes which is a 9% decrease compared to the previous year. This suggests that we may see a fall in completions next year. That said, the decrease is largely driven by a drop in the number of affordable rent and market rent/sale products. Starts in social rent actually increased compared to the previous year.

Other results include:

  • 49% (21,527) of homes started were delivered outside the Affordable Homes Programme
  • 44% (18,265) of homes completed were delivered outside the Affordable Homes Programme
  • 48% (17,065) of affordable starts were delivered through Section 106 agreements
  • 49% (17,388) of affordable completions were delivered through Section 106 agreements
