Housebuilders Quarterly Consents Report
Last Updated: March 2022
The Housebuilders Quarterly Consents report is a quarterly report that monitors the number of houses and flats consented by planning authorities throughout Great Britain. The report shows numbers consented by housebuilder, county and region broken down between flats and houses. The report also shows the number of consents for both the private and the public sector. Information is obtained from personal and telephone contact with County Councils and local authorities, and monitoring web sites.
The Housebuilders Quarterly Consents report is a valuable tool in monitoring the potential for development in the housing market and tracking the activity of each housebuilder, large and small. The report is used by housebuilders to identify competitor activity and by materials and service providers to help identify new sales leads and forecast demand for their products.
