The National Social housing Data Map is a GIS based platform to capture a series of data sets including residential zoned lands, some 700 local authority-owned and Land Aggregation Scheme sites, other publicly owned sites and religious congregation sites with potential for housing development.


The basic information will include the site polygon, name, location, number of units, building-type, social housing need, value, and commencement notice information. Sensitive information included in the database (e.g. unresolved issues relating to boundaries and/or ownership, project timescales and any commercially sensitive information) will be withheld from publication.
