Targets set by the council for the last four financial years have all been exceeded. 2018/19 saw 2,102 new homes completed. The target for 2019/20 is 1,600 new homes (400 per quarter).
An additional 647 (net) new homes were completed in July – September 2019. Although this is a significant decrease from April to June (749) it still represents the second highest number of completions recorded in a single quarter. This takes completions for the financial year so far to 1,396 against the current annual target of 1,600. It is anticipated that the delivery of new homes will maintain the current high level with a total of 1,321 new homes recorded as under construction at the end of September 2019.
