The Scottish Government said there were 18,750 new build homes completed across all sectors in the year to September 2018, an increase of 4% or 635 homes on the previous year.
However, private sector-led completions fell 3% to 13,831 completions.
Scotland’s Chief Statistician released the latest Quarterly Housing Statistics for Scotland, which present the latest quarterly information on new build housing and affordable housing supply.
“The 4% increase in all sector new build completions in the 12 months ending September 2018 included increases in housing association completions (35% or 887 homes) and local authority completions (8% or 116 homes), whilst private sector-led completions fell by 368 homes (3%),” said the Scottish Government.
“The total number of social sector completions (housing association and local authority starts combined) increased by 1,003 homes (26%).”
