Housing facts and figures 2004/2005 – 2018/2019
Social rented and intermediate housing audit (2019)
An audit was carried out in 2016 where the council wrote to all the Registered Providers (RPs) requesting details of units held. There are 11,999 units managed by RPs in Southwark and there have been 4,320 affordable units secured by S106 legal agreements since 2001. The audit can be found here (xlsx, 103kb).
The audit contains planning permissions since 2001 and shows the Registered Provider/Registered Social Landlord for each social rent and intermediate unit identified. In some cases the Registered Provider/Registered Social Landlord is yet to be confirmed. It must be noted that this is not a complete list and should be used as guidance only.
We are currently setting up a system to monitor affordable housing in Southwark, to ensure that it remains as set out in the S106 legal agreement. A discovery phase of work has recently finished on the project, which looked into how clear and timely information on the affordable housing in the borough can be accessed and monitored. In addition to monitor this information on a frequent basis, ways to make this information publicly available in an easy and clearly presentable way were also explored. More information on the affordable housing monitoring project can be found here.
