Question ref. S4W-21331

Date lodged: 27 May 2014

Question

To ask the Scottish Government how many (a) council houses and (b) properties owned by registered social landlords have been demolished in each year since the current unitary authorities were established, broken down by local authority area.

Current status: Answered by Margaret Burgess on 6 June 2014


Answer

Information on the number of local authority demolitions by area from 1998-99 to 2012-13 is published as part of the Housing Statistics for Scotland web tables at:

http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Housing-Regeneration/HSfS/Demolitions.

These tables are planned to be updated for the year 2013-14 in August 2014.

Due to the limitations in the coverage of the data provided by local authorities it is not possible to accurately identify the number of registered social landlord and private sector demolitions, however combined figures across these tenures are published within the web tables to help indicate a minimum total level of demolition activity.
