||<p>Everyone deserves a decent and safe place to live. We have seen clear improvements
in decency in recent years. As at 1 April 2018, 4 per cent of local authority owned
dwellings were non-decent across England. Over 516,000 local authority homes have
been bought up to the Decent Homes Standard since 2010.</p><p>The Department publishes
data on the proportion of local authority owned non-decent homes in each local authority
area at the Local Authority Housing Statistics (LAHS) section F question 17, which
can be found at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/local-authority-housing-statistics-data-returns-for-2017-to-2018"
