Annual count of new homes in Shropshire

The net number of new homes is based on new builds, conversions, change of use, less the demolitions of existing homes.

Following a downturn in the number of homes during the recession there has been an upturn in house building across Shropshire. The net number of new homes to the year ending March 2020 was 1554.  Around 19.4% of these were built on brownfield land. 223 were affordable homes of which 107 were affordable/social rented tenure.
