Requested Mon 17 December 2018
Responded Mon 21 January 2019
I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. I am in the process of researching for my dissertation and I am keen to find out the level of uptake of modern methods of construction by councils around the UK and I was hoping that you could provide me with the following information please:
1. What has been the total spend on housing development budget for each full financial year over the last 5 years?
2. In your best estimate, what percentage of this budget over this time has been spent on traditional methods of construction?
3.In your best estimate, what percentage of this budget over this time has been spent on modern methods of construction? In particular off site construction.
4. If there is a low level of uptake with MMC then could you give me the main reason or reasons as to why this might be please?
Hastings Borough Council does not currently develop its own housing and has therefore not allocated a budget for this.
Q1 - 3 - Zero
Q4 - Information not held
