Ministry of Housing and Local Government and predecessors: Legal and Parliamentary Branch and predecessors: Housing Instruments and Consents
Consents by the Local Government Board, the Ministry of Health and their successors for the erection of houses, for street and sewerage works, sale, exchange and lease of land, the purchase and appropriation of land and for various other matters under the Housing Acts 1890-1955 and in other legislation containing housing provisions. Rights of Way Extinguishment Orders are also included. The series contains both sealed and unsealed documents, many with folded plans. Up to 1920 the papers have been bound.
The papers dated March 1910 to July 1920 are in bound volumes: the later papers are unbound and date to 26.2.1955 when owing to a change in procedure within the Department the deposit was discontinued (instead of two sealed Orders, one only was made and sent to the local authority; the Department retained a copy).

Housing for the Working Classes Act, 1890, 1901, 1903, 1909
Housing Act, 1919, 1923, 1925, 1930, 1936
