A total of 1,119 new homes entered the housing supply for the district in the last complete financial year, says Canterbury City Council.
They include new builds, conversions, changes of use to residential and varieties of student accommodation.
The figure is contained in the council’s monitoring report for the 2017/18 financial year which examines the progress of the Local Plan and comes as local authorities face mounting pressure to create homes.

It goes on to state that the council now has enough land available for housing in the district for the next six-and-a-half years.
The report adds that the contributions from developers, known as 106 Agreements, has netted the authority £2.275 million for infrastructure such as roads, medical facilities, school places, play areas and open space.
Council Leader Cllr Simon Cook said: “The authority monitoring report makes for interesting reading, setting out the good progress made on providing homes, infrastructure, employment space and much more.
“One aspect of the report that is particularly important is the housing land supply, and by having well in excess of the five years we need, we are in a strong position to fend off speculative applications from developers for land we would not want to see developed.
“The report also puts to bed the myth that we grant planning permissions for houses but never secure the infrastructure that is needed to support them.
“A figure of well over £2 million pounds is a significant sum and we’ll be ensuring every penny of this gets spent to provide what the district needs.”
In 2017/18, the council processed 1,823 planning applications. Of those 56 went to appeal with the council successfully defending 80 per cent of them.
