Council stock by type and letting/vacancy status.
Note: These may be large files.
The Scottish Government Housing Statistics Stock 1 return collects basic information on all local authority stock of dwellings as at 31 March each year, whether or not it is currently available for letting. Results are available at http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Housing-Regeneration/HSfS/Stock
A dwelling is a building or part of a building which forms a separate and self-contained set of premises designed to be occupied by one household. Includes any building or part of a building designed or adapted for multiple occupation by a group of small households with some shared facilities. Does not include institutional hostels with communal catering.
A permanent dwelling is a dwelling where the walls are of brick, stone, concrete block or similar material and which had a design life of 60 years or more at the time of construction. Include dwellings of non-traditional construction with a 60 year design life. Chalets, Terrapins and similar dwellings are considered non-permanent and should not be included.
A house is a dwelling divided vertically from every other dwelling and with its principal access from ground level. Include detached, semi-detached and terraced houses.
A flat is a dwelling on one floor, which only occupies a part of the building.
A maisonette is a dwelling on more than one floor, which only occupies a part of the building.
A high rise flat is a flat in a building of 5 storeys or more with a lift.
A tenement flat is a flat in a building of two or more floors containing two or more flats with a shared access.
A 4 in a block dwelling (i.e. cottage flat) is a building that contains 4 flats, each with their own access.
Please note: Total dwelling counts, and counts of 'houses' and 'all flats' should be considered accurate and consistent between years. Distinctions between different sub-types of flat may vary between years in a given authority and the basis for designating stock to a type may differ between LAs as authorities differ in their ability to supply this information. These tables should therefore only be considered to be estimates.
