Social Housing Sales, 2011-12
This statistical release presents information on Social Housing sales in Wales, and their impact on dwelling stock. It covers sales of local authority dwellings and sales of Registered Social Landlord (RSL) dwellings. Information relating to Social Housing Sales refers to the financial year 2011-12, together with comparisons with figures for earlier periods. Information on dwelling stock is as at 31 March 2011.
The latest release updates the statistics previously released on 15 June 2011.
Social Housing Sales data was previously collected on a quarterly basis and published alongside the New House Building data in a combined first release. The consultation ‘Proposed Changes to Housing Data Collections’ that ended on the 15 July 2011 concluded that the sales data should just be collected annually. This was implemented for the 2011-12 collection year. A summary of responses to this consultation is available on our website.
In addition, the consultation ‘Proposed Changes to Social Housing Sales Data Collections’ closed on 1 March 2012. Due to time constraints, it has been decided that the changes proposed in this consultation will not be implemented until the 2012-13 data collection so will not, therefore, be reflected in this release. A summary of responses to this consultation is available.
Further information on both of these consultations can be found in the Key Quality Information section towards the end of the release.
The key points from the latest release are:
- Following a steady downward trend, social housing sales in 2011-12 increased by a quarter over the last year. However, this varied across landlord type, with local authority sales down by 27 per cent on the previous year, whilst the sale of RSL dwellings was up by almost 50 per cent.
- Between 1 April 2011 and 31 March 2012, a total of 470 socially rented dwellings have been transferred into the private sector through the sale of 84 local authority and 386 RSL dwellings, via Right to Buy and other schemes.
