DCLG civil servants are carrying out a review of the current
agreement on replacement of homes sold under the Reinvigorated
Right to Buy Scheme introduced in 2012 with significantly larger
In introducing the re-invigorated RTB, the government also
pledged to provide an affordable dwelling for each additional RTB
dwelling sold under the reinvigorated RTB Scheme compared to the
numbers that were expected to be sold under the previous RTB
There has been widespread concern, highlighted in a National Audit Office report that the current
scheme is failing to deliver one-for-one replacement of the
additional homes sold under the Reinvigorated RTB since April
DCLG is keen to hear from councils that have had difficulty in
meeting the requirements of the agreement and ideas for
flexibilities or amendments that would help overcome these. The
DCLG contact is Mark Ellis (firstname.lastname@example.org).
