Recommended Posts

In Sheffield there are 7459 empty homes (the highest nominal amount in South Yorkshire - throughout SY there are 20 143 empty homes).

 

In total there are 229 928 homes in Sheffield, 7459 (3.2%) of which are empty.

 

Sheffield tenure for 2011;

Owned Outright; 62 329 (27.1%)

Mortgaged; 71 798 (31.2%)

Shared Ownership; 881 (0.4%)

Socially rented (council); 40 725 (17.7%)

Socially rented (HA); 16 192 (7.0%)

Private rented (Landlord/Letting agent); 32 605 (14.2%)

Private rented (Other); 3155 (1.4%)

Living rent free;2243 (1.0%)

 

Throughout South Yorkshire, Sheffield has the lowest rate of homes owned outright, the lowest rate of homes mortgaged, but the highest rate of shared ownership.

 

Owned outright; Barnsley(30.6%), Rotherham(30.5%), Doncaster (31.0%)

Mortgaged; Barnsley (33.8%), Rotherham (34.7%), Doncaster (34.4%)

Shared ownership; Barnsley (0.4%), Rotherham (0.3%), Doncaster (0.3%)

 

The social rented (council) sector is average for South Yorkshire, there is the same rate of housing that is socially rented from the council as in Barnsley (17.7%), Rotherham has a higher rate of social housing (17.9%), whilst the rate in Donny is just 15.2%.

 

7% of property in Sheffield is housing association, this is the highest rate in South Yorkshire. Rotherham (3.6%), Barnsley (3.2%), Doncaster (2.6%).

 

14.2% of property is privately rented in Sheffield form a landlord or letting agent, the highest amount in South Yorkshire. Barnsley (11.7%), Rotherham (10.3%), Doncaster (13.5%)

 

1.4% of property is privately rented (other) in Sheffield, again the highest amount in South Yorkshire. Barnsley (1.0%), Rotherham (1.0%), Doncaster (1.3%)

 

Just 1.0% of property has people living rent free, the lowest amount in South Yorkshire. Barnsley (1.6%), Rotherham (1.7%), Doncaster (1.7%).

 

Data for Sheffield form 2001 census;

Total amount of households = 217 622

Of which;

Owned Outright = 53 037 (24.37%)

Mortgaged = 76 660 (35.23%)

Shared Ownership = 1208 (0.56%)

Rented from local authority = 57 601 (26.47%)

Rented from HA = 8303 (3.82%)

Rented private landlord/letting agency = 16 608 (7.63%)

Rented private (other) + living rent free = 4205 (1.93%)

 

From 2001 to 2011 the amount of houses in Sheffield has increased by 12306 from 217 622 to 229 928. This is an increase of 5.6% (much lower than the 7.7% increase in population over the same period).

 

The amount owned outright has increased from 53 037 to 62 329 (up 17.5%).

The amount of mortgaged property has fallen from 76 660 to 71 798 (down 6.3%).

The amount of shared ownership property has fallen from 1208 to 881 (down 27.1%).

The amount of council property has fallen from 57601 to 40 725 (down 29.3%).

The amount of HA property has risen from 8303 to 16192 (up 95.0%).

The total amount of socially rented property has thus fallen from 65 904 to 56917 (down 13.6%).

The amount of private rented property has increased from 16 608 to 32605 (up 96.3%).

 

 

As can be seen from the data, Sheffield has not built enough houses to meet the demand of its growing population. The amount of socially rented property has fallen by 13.6%, (that owned by the council by a whopping 29.3%). People have been forced into the private rented sector and this has grown by an astonishing 96.3% in just 10 years.

 

Sheffield has the worst distribution of housing tenure for new entrants to the market in South Yorkshire. People wishing to be housed in Sheffield are unlikely to access council housing and will be forced into the dreaded private rented sector. This suggests to me Sheffield offers the worst forms of housing to people in South Yorkshire who require housing. This is the reason why I left, and why my housing standards are now far far better than what they would have been had I stayed...

 

Sheffield has some serious housing problems that need to be tackled. In particular a lack of council housing.

Wow, thank you. A second set of interesting stats, saving a lot of research time for others.

It really does show the need for further investment in public housing.

Your welcome.

 

Hopefully people can add to the data - I did not provide links to this data in the OP this time, as the amount of windows and spreadsheets open was causing my computer to run slow, so I closed them to avoid losing my typing on here.

 

However to find the data;

 

Go here for the 2001 census data (its the excel sheet);

http://neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk/dissemination/filesetSelection.do?step=5&datasetFamilyId=53&instanceSelection=127&filesetIndex=0&Next.x=12&Next.y=3&rightPaneBoxHeight=0&JSAllowed=true&browserHeight=709&browserWidth=1263&%24ph=60_61_64&CurrentPageId=64

 

For the 2011 data;

http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/datasets-and-tables/index.html?newquery=*&newoffset=100&pageSize=50&content-type=Reference+table&content-type=Dataset&content-type-orig=%22Dataset%22+OR+content-type_original%3A%22Reference+table%22&sortBy=pubdate&sortDirection=DESCENDING&applyFilters=true

 

I used; 2011 Census:

KS401EW Dwellings, household spaces and accommodation type, local authorities in England and Wales (Excel sheet 305Kb)

 

and

 

2011 Census: KS402EW Tenure, local authorities in England and Wales (Excel sheet 270Kb)

 

It really does show the need for further investment in public housing.

Indeed, and it justifies and confirms many of my obsessive 'rants' on here.

 

The youth of today and tomorrow, God help them!

 

(I did put myself down as athiest in both the 2001 and 2011 censuses, but perhaps the time has come for me to pray for the future generations).
