ARCH continues to press the case for council housing 10/12/2015

Cllr Paul Ellis, ARCH Chairman, and John Bibby, Chief Executive, met with John Healey MP, Shadow Housing Minister, to press the case for council housing.


At the meeting held on 26 November 2015 in Portcullis House at the Houses of Parliament, John Healey MP was briefed on the ARCH submissions to the Public Bills Committee on the Housing and Planning Bill and the Welfare Reform and Work Bill as well as the ARCH response to the recent Consultation Paper on the introduction of a mandatory 'pay to stay' scheme for higher income social tenants.


ARCH will continue to press the case for council housing with the government and opposition parties. Also, following further exchange of correspondence with Housing Minister Brandon Lewis MP, we'll be contacting the senior civil servant responsible for extension of the Right to Buy to arrange a meeting to discuss the Voluntary Right to Buy extension to housing associations and its implications for stock retained councils.


We'll keep you updated.
