In November 1995, it is provisionally estimated that 11,900 dwellings were started in Great Britain compared with 14,400 in November 1994. Completions numbered 15,900 compared with 17,400 in the previous year.

In the latest three months 36,900 dwellings were started, down 22% on the same three months a year ago, while completions at 46,500 were down 8%.

Seasonally adjusted comparisons

In the three months September to November 1995, total starts were down 14% compared with the previous three months while total completions were down 6%. Private enterprise starts were down 17% and completions were down by 10%.

Housing association starts of new dwellings in the three months September to November 1995 were lower than during the previous three months but completions were higher.

Both starts and completions by local authorities and government departments remained at a low level.

RENOVATIONS

It is provisionally estimated that 13,900 mandatory and 8,600 discretionary house renovation grants (including 7,600 minor works assistance) were paid to private owners and tenants in England during the third quarter of 1995.

This can be compared with 12,300 mandatory and 7,100 discretionary grants in the second quarter and 13,400 mandatory and 8,300 discretionary grants in the third quarter of 1994.

In the third quarter of 1995 some 56,600 local authority dwellings were converted of improved, compared with 64,400 in the second quarter and 61,300 in the third quarter of 1994.
