It is provisionally estimated that 15,600 dwellings were started in Britain in November 1994, the same as the 15,600 in November 1993. Completions numbered 16,500 compared with 16,300 in the previous year.

In the latest three months 48,100 dwellings were started, up 4% on the same three months a year ago, while completions at 48,500 were up 3%.

In the three months September to November 1994, total starts were down 1% compared with the previous three months while total completions were up 2%. Private starts were up 5% with completions up 3%.

Housing association starts of new dwellings in the three months September to November 1994 were sharply lower but completions were slightly higher than during the previous three months.

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

It is provisionally estimated that 13,400 mandatory and 8,500 discretionary grants (including 7,200 minor works assistance) were paid to private owners and tenants in England during the third quarter of 1994 under the Local Government and Housing Act 1989.

This can be compared with 11,300 mandatory and 7,100 discretionary grants in the second quarter of 1994 and 11,700 mandatory and 7,500 discretionary grants in the third quarter of 1993.

In the third quarter of 1994 some 70,100 local authority and new town dwellings were converted or improved, compared with 48,300 in the second quarter of 1994 and 49,900 in the third quarter of 1993.
