star this property answer text <p>The latest figures for the replacement of council homes sold under the Right to Buy can be found in the statistical release <em>Right to Buy Sales in England: July to September 2018</em> , and show a shortfall of 2,501 replacements against additional sales. This is despite an increase in council housebuilding, and an overall net increase in social housing of 79,000 units since 2010. <br> <br> We have taken steps to help councils build more homes, by removing the Housing Revenue Account borrowing cap; providing long-term rent stability for social landlords; committing to repeal the legislation in the Housing and Planning Act which, if implemented, would have led to local authorities’ selling off vacant, high value council homes; and, most recently, consulting local authorities on options to afford them greater flexibility in how they can use their Right to Buy receipts to help them build faster.</p> more like this
