CLG release latest housebuilding figures

August 26, 2009

The most recent figures on housebuilding in England have released on the website of the Department for Communities and Local Government.  Some highlights (lowlights?) picked out by the authors are:

  • There were an estimated 29,980 seasonally adjusted housing starts in England in the June quarter 2009, up 63 per cent on the previous quarter but nine per cent lower than the June quarter 2008. This is the second successive quarterly rise in seasonally adjusted housing starts.
  • Annual housing starts figures for England continued to decline. They totalled 87,190 in the 12 months to June 2009, down 41 per cent compared with the 12 months to June 2008 and 53 per cent below their 2005-06 peak.
  • Annual housing completions in England totalled 136,140 in the 12 months to June 2009, down by 16 per cent compared with the 12 months to June 2008.
