Dear Mr Mann,

 

Thank you for your clarified information request of 15 July 2019 and
please accept our apologies for delay in providing the response to you. 
Aberdeen City Council (ACC) has completed the necessary search for the
information requested. Our response is now detailed below.

 

Please can I also ask that you break down questions 2 and 4, by the
reasons the affordable homes were made unavailable (by demolition, sale,
etc.)

Please can you also break down Q5 by the number of homes, including the
tenure type of affordable home sold (MMR, social rent, shared ownership,
etc.).

 

 1. Please specify how many affordable homes offered by your council alone
has been built during the financial years of 2016/17, 2017/18 and
2018/19.

2016/17 – None

2017/18 – 21

2018/19 - 106

 

 2. Please specify how many were demolished, sold or were made otherwise
unavailable as affordable homes during the financial years of 2016/17,
2017/18 and 2018/19.

2017/18 – 72 sold under RTB

2018/19 – 6 sold under RTB 119 demolished due to infrastructure.

 

 3. Please outline the council’s projections for the number of affordable
homes to be added to its housing stock during the financial years of
2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22.

The Aberdeen City Local Housing Strategy (LHS) 2018-2023 provides the
strategic direction to respond to housing need and demand and informs the

future investment in housing and housing related services across the city.
The LHS identifies an affordable housing target of 342 homes per year in
18/19 and 19/20 and 385 per year in 20/21, 21/22 and 22/23.

 

In order to meet this requirement a number of delivery options are being
taken forward with the key areas being:

1. New Build on Council owned sites;

2. Land led Developer opportunities;

3. Buy – Back Council House stock;

4. Portfolio Acquisition;

5. Targeted acquisition and development of sites

 

The Council is also committed to delivering 2,000 new council houses by
2022 and this is well under way.  Please refer to Council Committee
agendas and minutes for further information.

 

 4. Please specify how affordable homes are projected to be demolished,
sold or made otherwise unavailable during the financial years of
2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22.

2019/20 – 124 – demolished; 44 – major repairs; 1 – awaiting disposal 

2020/21 – 48 - demolished

2021/22 - 0

 

 5. Please tell me how much your council has made from sales of affordable
housing stock from 2014/15 until 2018/19.

 

Council homes sold
Year under Right to Buy Amount
2014-15 178 £ 10,879,714.06
2015-16 136 £    8,677,515.81
2016-17 173 £ 10,871,920.32
2017-18 72 £    4,110,913.88
2018-19 6 £        676,394.31
  £ 35,216,458.38
