HC Deb 18 July 1969 vol 787 cc215-6W
Miss Pike

asked the Minister of Housing and Local Government what will be the estimated total number of houses completed in each New Town by 1973.

Mr. MacColl

It is not possible to make firm estimates, particularly since private enterprise housebuilders are now expected to play a substantial part in the development of the new towns. The position at the end of 1968 was as follows:

Total number of dwellings completed in English new towns by the end of 1968 by development corporations and the Commission for the New Towns and on land made available by them for private development
Aycliffe 5,694
Basildon 16,725
Bracknell 7,709
Corby 6,966
Crawley 13,909
Harlow 20,382
Hatfield 4,385
Hemel Hempstead 13,281
Peterlee 6,066
Redditch 139
Runcorn 340
Skelmersdale 1,773
Stevenage 15,893
Telford 1,015
Washington 189
Welwyn 6,442
Total 120,908
