Rise In Right To Buy Sales Leaves 'Lack Of Social Housing'

The number of tenants buying their council homes is at the highest level for almost a decade.  Latest figures published by the CLG show that 362 homes were sold under the Right to Buy scheme in 2015/16 - the highest number since 2006/07 when 382 council tenants bought their property. The number of Nottingham residents buying their council home every year has steadily increased every year since 2010/11 when the figure dipped to 73. In Nottinghamshire - excluding Nottingham city - 185 council homes were bought by tenants in 2015/16. This is the highest number since 2007/08 when 209 homes were sold.
