Housing: Bassetlaw

Question for Department for Communities and Local Government

UIN 198795, tabled on 4 June 2014

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, how many new houses are under construction in Bassetlaw district.

Answered on

9 June 2014

The Department does not hold data centrally on the number of homes currently under construction. Data is recorded when a building is started, defined as the laying of the foundations and when the residence is completed, defined as when ready for occupation or supplied with a completion certificate. The length of time between these two points will vary and therefore we cannot know how many are currently under construction.

Statistics on house building starts in Bassetlaw District are published in the Department's live tables 253 (annually) and 253a (quarterly), which are available at the following link:
