To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their estimate of the number of approved planning applications for housing that have yet to be built.
Answered on: 04 April 2016

As at 1 March 2016, data provided to the department by Glenigan indicate that there were full planning permissions for 658,000 homes in England on sites on which work had either not yet started or completed. Of these around 55,000 (8 per cent) were on unstarted sites granted permission more than three years ago. Typically permissions for these homes will have expired.
