Making the case for investment in council housing 15/09/2016

ARCH will be participating in a round table discussion with CIH, CIPFA and the NFA to examine how best to take forward the recommendations in the recent CIH/CIPFA report "Investing in council housing" with a view to making representations to the government in advance of the Autumn Statement in November


The report examines the 2012 "self-financing settlement" that put in place a long-term plan for council house building. It argues that successive policy changes have cut rental income so that today, just 45,000 new homes are expected - no more than were planned before the settlement was made.


The report also recommended that councils (through the LGA, ARCH and the NFA) should examine what commitments could be made to the government to improve housing supply in return for commitments that would provide more stable HRA Business Plans.


The round table meeting will be held on Wednesday 21 September and a cross-section of ARCH and NFA members have been invited to attend to ensure that any submissions reflect the views of our members.
