339 council homes have NOT BEEN replaced in Northampton
When the government expanded right-to-buy in 2011, ministers said they were committed to “one for one replacement”. The Department for Communities and Local Government pledged it would ensure “every home sold is replaced”. However, councils have consistently warned that they are unable to keep up with the loss of housing under right-to-buy.
Today (29 June 2017) the live tables on social housing sales were updated
Table 691: Right to Buy Sales
Table 693: Starts on site and acquisitions
Which show Northampton have sold 457 of which 339 have NOT been replaced
