Housing; Local Government and Heritage | Local-authority housing application numbers this year
To ask the Minister for Housing; Local Government and Heritage the extent to which the number of applicants for local-authority housing or its equivalent has fluctuated in the course of the past twelve months; and if he will make a statement on the matter.
Information on the fluctuation in the number of applicants for local authority housing over the past 12 months is not held by my Department.
That said, details on the number of households qualified for social housing support in each local authority area is provided in the annual statutory Summary of Social Housing Assessments (SSHA). The SSHA captures the total number of households qualified for social housing support across the country whose social housing need has not yet been met.
The most recent summary for all counties, conducted in November 2021, is available at:
