  • Public housing (known as council housing or social housing in the UK) provided the majority of rented accommodation in the United Kingdom until 2011 when the number of households in private rental housing surpassed the number in social housing. Houses and flats built for public or social housing use are built by or for local authorities and known as council houses, though since the 1980s the role of non-profit housing associations became more important and subsequently the term "social housing" became more widely used, as technically council housing only refers to housing owned by a local authority, though the terms are largely used interchangeably. Before 1865, housing for the poor was provided solely by the private sector. Council houses were built on council estates, where other amenities, like schools and shops, were often also provided. From the 1950s, blocks of flats and three- or four-storey blocks of maisonettes were widely built, alongside large developments of terraced housing, while the 1960s and (to some degree) the 1970s saw construction of many high-rise tower blocks. Flats and houses were also built in mixed estates. Council homes were built to supply uncrowded, well-built homes on secure tenancies at reasonable rents to primarily working-class people. Council housing in the mid-20th century included many large suburban "council estates", featuring terraced and semi-detached houses, where other amenities like schools and shops were often also provided. By the late 1970s almost a third of UK households lived in social housing: some of these developments did not live up to the hopes of their supporters, and now suffer from urban blight, while others became desirable locations. Since 1979, the role of council housing has changed. Housing stock has been sold under Right to Buy legislation, and new social housing has mainly been developed and managed by housing associations. A substantial part of the UK population still lives in council housing: in 2010, about 17% of UK households. Approximately 55% of the country's social housing stock is owned by local authorities – of which 15% is managed on a day-to-day basis by arms-length management organisations, rather than the authority, and 45% by housing associations. In Scotland, council estates are known as 'schemes'. (en)
