Notice

09 November 2020

The supply of house building data has been affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The primary purpose of the UK house building data release is to provide collated statistics for the UK and Great Britain, but because not all countries are currently able to produce data for more recent quarters, producing the latest UK and Great Britain statistics is not possible.

We are aiming to update the data in February 2021 to follow the next publication of England data by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG). We will announce this on the ONS release calendar when known.

More up-to-date figures for individual countries are available in the “You might also be interested in” links in the release.
