General description

The information presented here relates to the number of additional affordable housing units provided in each year and location on land made available by the public sector in the last five years.

The data represents the numbers of additional units delivered or planned in each year built on land made available by the local authority in the last five years, and includes activity by the local authorities themselves as well that by registered social landlords (RSLs) and other private or voluntary sector developers operating in each area.

The focus of this dataset is on additional affordable housing units delivered on land made available by the local authority in the last five years, and these are defined as those provided through new build schemes or through the purchase, leasing or conversion of existing units. This therefore excludes existing affordable units that have been renovated or refurbished, as they are not classed as being additional. However, where an existing unit has been converted into two separate units, then this represents an additional affordable unit delivered. Conversely where there was a net loss of affordable units within a property over the year there are no additional affordable housing units delivered. For example, if two self contained flats in one property were converted into one family home, then the number of additional units is classed as zero, although note that that is not recorded as a negative change to the number of additional units delivered.

In this context, delivered means that the unit is completed and is available for occupation.


Data collection and calculation

The information presented here is collected via annual returns from Welsh social landlords (local authorities and registered social landlords) on the actual affordable housing provision delivered during each year on land made available by the public sector in the last five years. The collection also requests the estimated future provision for the following two years.
