Statistics on numbers of dwellings owned by local authorities and private registered providers as at 31 March by local authority area are published by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities on the gov.uk website in live tables 116 and 115 respectively, which can be found at the following link: www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-dwelling-stock-including-vacants.

Statistics on the supply of new affordable housing in each local authority area, including acquisitions of existing stock for affordable housing, are also published on the gov.uk website, in live tables 1008C and 1011 at the following link: www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-affordable-housing-supply. The open datafile available at the same link breaks these statistics down into those that are new build and acquisitions of existing stock, and by provider. The Department does not collect these data by parliamentary constituency.
