This event is run in conjunction with the NFA. We'll hear first-hand from senior DCLG officials on the next steps and timetable for introduction of Part 4 of the Housing and Planning Act. We'll also examine the role that Local Housing Companies (LHC) can play in meeting housing demand and much more.


Tenants, elected members and officers from ARCH members are welcome, however, it's primarily aimed at officers who need to know more about the technical details in implementation Part 4 of the Housing and Planning Act and the role of Local Housing Companies in increasing housing supply. 


Find out when the government intends to release details about the Right to Buy levy, the sale of higher value council housing and DCLG plans for implementation of 'pay to stay' and the phasing out of lifetime tenancies.


Delegates will hear first-hand about the government's timetable for publication of draft Regulations and Determinations from the Head of Higher Value Assets and HRA at the DCLG.


In the process of setting up a LHC or just thinking about it? Want some practical advice?


Senior officers at Lincoln and Oxford will share information about their LHC, the reasons for setting one up and what they aim to achieve by doing so. You'll learn about the type and structure of the companies they have set up and how they are financed plus get some free guidance from Trowers and Hamlin LLP on the legal issues councils should consider in setting up local housing companies.


The NFA will also discuss how some ALMOs are extending their remit beyond management of the existing housing stock to play an important role in increasing housing supply to meet local demand. 


Our Regional Events are becoming increasingly popular and places are limited. ARCH members are entitled to two free places at this event on a first come basis.
