The department does not publish housing completion forecasts in Greater London. The first release of 2022 housing supply indicators of new supply will be published in March 2023.

Estimates of building control reported new build dwelling completions, by tenure of developer, for London in each of the last 3 years, are shown in Live Table 217, at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-house-building.

These cover new build dwellings only and should be regarded as a leading indicator of overall housing supply.

The department also publishes an annual release entitled 'Housing supply: net additional dwellings, England', which is the primary and most comprehensive measure of housing supply: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-net-supply-of-housing.

These cover all housing supply, but data by tenure are not centrally collected.
