House numbers in Cornwall – change at the local level


Using data from the Council Tax Base it is possible to see what has happened to house numbers at the local level over time. The data captures houses on the Council tax base as distinct from numbers built.

What does the data tell us?

Between 2011 and 2016 numbers rose from 252,500 to 265,100 or 12,600 (5%). Thats an average of 2,500 a year. [Enough to deal with local needs housing if it were not for the fact that house building has little to do with meeting local housing needs].

But the 5% increase hides some important local distinctions.

30% of the additions were located in ten of the Mid Super Output Areas. [There are 73 in total in Cornwall].

St Austell North 2690 3130 440 16.4
