The information on new house building is based on the reports of local authority building inspectors and the National House Building Council (NHBC), which is a private approved inspector. It does not include information from other private approved inspectors.
- Following a fall in 2011-12, the number of new dwellings started rose for the second year in a row with 5,786 new dwellings started during 2013-14. Whilst there were 9 per cent more dwellings started during 2013-14 than during 2012-13, the number of starts still remains well below the level seen prior to the economic downturn.
- Generally the number of new dwellings completed have levelled out since 2010-11, however during 2013-14 there were 5,843 new dwellings completed in Wales which is 7 per cent more than during 2012-13 and the highest annual number recorded since 2009-10.
- During 2013-14 the number of new dwellings completed for the private sector increased by 10 per cent, compared to the previous year, rising to 5,160 dwellings which is the highest number recorded since 2009-10. In contrast the number of completions for the social sector fell for the third year in a row, falling by 8 per cent compared to 2012-13.
Following a consultation on a range of proposals relating to official statistics, new house building information will continue to be collected and published, via StatsWales, on a quarterly basis however publication of the full quarterly statistical release will be replaced with an annual statistical release.
This release is therefore the last in the series of quarterly new house building releases. We will continue to update quarterly data via StatsWales, pre-announce the publication of quarterly data on our release calendar and update certain headline statistics on this page.
