For a Council Housing Renaissance: A joint manifesto by ARCH and the NFA 03/02/2015

ARCH Manifesto 300

Ahead of May's General Election ARCH and the National Federation of ALMOs have for the first time united the council housing sector to produce a manifesto that sets out a series of practical policies which would see councils and ALMOs play a key role in meeting the country's housing needs.

 

Key recommendations in the manifesto include:

 

  • Support for the removal of debt caps which would provide the financial capacity to build 20,000 homes a year. It would also increase councils' capacity to invest in their existing stock.

 

  • Reforms to the bureaucratic arrangements that hinder local authorities replacing homes sold under Right to Buy, with extra help to ensure a one for one replacement.

 

  • A review of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) to enable councils to get a fairer division of 'planning gain' between landowners and local communities.
