Details of the definition of start on site and completion are shown within The Affordable Housing Capital Funding Guide (AHCFG) which can be found through the GLA website.

Delivery of the affordable housing programmes are monitored through the GLA's Investment Management System (IMS) with starts and completions logged on the system by providers and approved by GLA staff.
