Housing units given planning permission by the council

The request was successful.

Dear Newham Borough Council,

Please tell me the gross number of residential units for which the council has approved planning permission, over the last three financial years up to 2017-2018.

Please could you tell me the gross number of residential units for which the council has given planning permission for the last three financial years up to 2017-2018 which must be provided at the council’s definition of affordable rent once built?

Please could you tell me the gross number of residential units for which the council has given planning permission to each year, for the last three financial years up to 2017-2018, and which must be provided at the council’s definition of social rent once built?

When answering the three above questions, please could you tell me how many of these units have been built and are habitable. Could you also note how many of these units per year were included in planning applications that were submitted by the council.

Please could you provide me with a statement that clarifies the council’s definitions of “affordable rent” and “social rent”.

Please could you tell me the gross number of residential units in the borough that have been demolished each year, for the last three financial years up to 2017-2018.

Yours faithfully,

Owen Sheppard

Newham Borough Council
