  • Registrations - when a developer has registered their intent to build a new home
  • Starts - when the construction of a home begins
  • Completions - when a plot has been signed off by NHBC and is ready to be sold.

International Territorial Level (ITL) 2

International Territorial Level (ITL) 3

International Territorial Levels (ITLs) are a standard for referencing the geographical sub-divisions of the UK for statistical purposes, used by the Office for National Statistics (ONS). ITL 2 divides the UK into about 40 areas with population ranges between 800,000 and 3,000,000. ITL 3 is even more detailed, dividing the UK into over 170 areas with population ranges between 150,000 and 800,000. The next review of ITLs by the ONS is scheduled to be in 2024. More information on ITLs.
