Chief executive of the HCA, Pat Ritchie, commenting on the figures, said: "This is a good result and we are where we expected to be in our delivery programme. The numbers demonstrate strong completions and a solid platform on which to build, especially when put into context alongside the HCA’s wider delivery work. It also shows we are making a significant impact on boosting the supply of affordable homes in the areas where they are most needed, in partnership with local authorities and providers across England.
"Our teams have worked hard and we will continue to look at more innovative ways of working with and supporting our delivery partners, most significantly through our Affordable Homes Programme as it gathers momentum.
"We will be reviewing and monitoring delivery for the coming year of the Programme, to ensure that our funding offers the best value for public money and helps meet government aspirations of delivering up to 170,000 new homes by 2015."
