More homes are being built in Leeds than in any other town or city in England, according to figures from the GMB union.

The report breaks down government statistics to show how many dwellings were completed in each local authority in the year ending March 2006.

It shows that 3,229 dwellings were built in Leeds, of which 71 were built by registered social landlords, 2.2% of the total. Berwick-upon-Tweed in Northumberland comes bottom of the league. It built 14 homes, none of which was affordable.

The figures show that of the 163,398 completed dwellings, 11.3% were built by housing associations and councils. The region with the highest level of completions was the South-east, where 28,209 dwellings were built, 16.5% by social landlords.
