Autumn Budget date announced 14/09/2017 Labelled as Finance

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Philip Hammond, has announced that the government will publish its Autumn Budget on Wednesday 22 November 2017.


The Autumn Budget sets out the government's plans for the economy based on the latest forecasts from the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR).


Following the Chancellor's announcement at Autumn Statement 2016, there will now only be one fiscal event in each year, held in the Autumn. From 2018 there will be a Spring Statement, responding to the forecast from the Office of Budget Responsibility (OBR), but no major fiscal event.


The Housing Sector will be watching carefully to see if the Autumn Budget 2017 contains any announcements on housing policy & spending including any additional resources for social & affordable rented housing and proposals set out in the Housing White Paper including Bespoke Housing Deals, social rent policy post 2020, and the building of Fixed Term Council Housing mentioned in the Conservative Party General Election Manifesto.


The sector is also expecting some announcements on the future of the High Value Asset Levy and sale of higher value council housing introduced by the Housing & Planning Act 2016 but not yet implemented following the decision of previous Housing Minister Gavin Barwell to defer introduction of the HVA Levy until after April 2018.
