About ARCH

ARCH (Association of Retained Council Housing) is an association of councils in England who have retained ownership and management of their council homes.  We aim to get the best deal for councils and their tenants.  About 100 local authorities still own and manage around 800,000 homes, and we are here to make sure that a positive future for council housing is secured.


What ARCH does for the retained stock council sector:


  • Represents collective interests of retained stock councils
  • Lobbies government for a strong retained stock sector
  • Helps members meet the challenges and seize the opportunities of the recently reformed council housing finance system and other government initiatives
  • Demonstrates the benefits of retained stock in meeting wider local and national priorities
  • Promotes best practice
  • Listens to the views of tenants
