UK Housing Review 2011-2012


UK Housing Review 2011-2012


Celebrating twenty years of publishing comprehensive housing statistics, the latest UK Housing Review again provides a key resource for busy managers and policy-makers across both public and private housing sectors. Incorporating numerous figures unpublished elsewhere, it brings together the most up-to-date housing statistics available for England (and its regions), Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

It features over 200 charts and tables including data about:

• Homelessness and lettings

• Housing investment by councils and

• Housing stock and conditions housing associations

• Housing characteristics and incomes

• Subsidies, tax relief and benefits

• House prices and market trends

• Public expenditure plans

• Rents and revenue spending

• UK and international economic trends


Commentary chapters in this year’s Review include analysis of recent trends in UK housing markets and in housing needs, as well as of housing provision and public expenditure on housing and the government’s current plans. There are also four chapters on these topical issues:

• The changing scale and role of private renting in the UK housing market

• The obstacles facing homeowners

• The quickening pace of devolution in Scotland, Wales and Northern ireland

• Migration and its impacts on housing


The UK Housing Review continues to be the prime source for all concerned with housing policy and finance.

‘At a time of growing public concern about Britain’s housing needs and how these can best be met, the importance of good, up-to-date information and perceptive analysis of market trends and relevant financial data cannot be over-emphasised. The UK Housing Review admirably fulfils this role.’ Nick Raynsford, MP and former government minister.

‘It’s more than just a bible for statistics anoraks – the articles are insightful, and the tables are indispensable for anyone trying to get a broad understanding of housing-related data outside their specific areas of expertise.’ Sue Anderson, Council of Mortgage Lenders.
