Figure 17, Figure 18 and Figure 19 highlight Hackney and the City’s distinctive tenure patterns alluded to in the Local Data section relating to Housing Tenure.

Hackney has a much smaller owner-occupied sector and the second largest social rented sectors in London. The private rented sector is one of the smallest among Hackney’s statistical ’peers’, but the size of this tenure more than doubled in the decade up to the 2011 Census, and is now higher than the London average.

The City of London has a much larger owner-occupied sector, but this is still lower than the London average.  The percentage share of the City’s private rented sector is one of the highest in London, while social renting is less common.
