FINDINGS


Social housing market trends


As of latest statistics, there are x.xx million social housing, either rented from councils or housing associations, listed for England in 2018. Of these, x.xx million are rented from housing associations while x.xx million were council homes. Social housing in England is about xx% of the total house dwellings. Below are their figures in the recent previous years.

  • 2017 = x million ( x million are rented from housing associations while x million were council homes)
  • 2016 = x million ( x million n are rented from housing associations while x million were council homes)
  • 2015 = x million ( x million n are rented from housing associations while x million were council homes)
  • 2014 = x million ( x million n are rented from housing associations while x million were council homes)


Predictions around funding including general needs and supported housing


According to a factual government report , “ during the height of council building, in the 1950s, councils built on average around 147,000 homes a year while in the past 10 years councils have averaged building around 1,400 homes a year and this is due to a number of Government restrictions and lack of funding available.”


In England, public spending on housing has lagged behind expenditure on other public services over the past twenty years and the focus of spending has increasingly been on housing benefits rather than investment in new social or affordable housing.


England needs to build four million new homes to deal with an escalating crisis, according to research, prompting calls for the government to dramatically increase funding and set more ambitious targets. Groundbreaking research by Heriot-Watt University says England has a backlog of x.xx million homes, meaning 340,000 new homes need to be built each year until 2031. This figure is significantly higher than the government’s current target of 300,000 homes annually and over the past five years, house-building has averaged xxx,xxx a year.


Accordingly, the government will continue to provide the major source of finance for housing providers. Homes England has been extremely active in pushing its £x.xxbn Home Building Fund through different channels. However, research shows that the government has been shifting and juggling with other priorities and many observers believe there is a risk that funding for affordable homes could get lost.
