Council House Sales by Local Authority from 1979

This page from the DCLG website has some useful stats on Council house sales since 1979, broken down by local authority and by region.

Table 648: Social housing sales: Local authority stock sold through right-to-buy and other council house sales by district and region has what I think are the best local authority figures.  This shows, for example, that there were 6886 council homes in Southampton sold off between 1979 and 1998; and that there were around 200 Council homes in Southampton being sold off per annum in the early years of the Labour government; and that this figure dropped to just 29 homes being sold off in 2009-10.
