Housing registers – what do they tell us?


A look at the data which is wrongly referred to as ‘Waiting lists’ does pose some interesting questions.

For example, between 2008 and 2015 the number of people on the list has changed:

Cornwall +60%
Cumbria -18%
Devon +16%

As readers of the ‘Its Our Cornwall’ blog will realise, over the 2010-15 period both Cumbria and Devon have seen far fewer houses built pro rata in population terms than Cornwall.

Odd that. We build more houses but the number of people on the list goes up!

But its not that difficult to work out why.

Cornwall’s Home Choice Register has not been revised – and it includes many households already housed in adequate conditions.
