Data is available on the total social rented stock in each London borough, as set out in the reply to MQT 2114/2006. Data is not available at borough level on the total affordable housing stock. Across London as a whole there are 248,000 shared ownership homes, some 0.8% of the total housing stock. The number of additional homes is given in Table 14 of the `London Plan Annual Monitoring Report 2'published on the GLA website. This is data for 2004/5 as the GLA is still collating data for 2005/6 from boroughs. The 2005/06 update should be available shortly.
