We are holding the first of our 2018 series of ‘All You Want to Know About Local Authority Housing Finance’ on 13th March 2018. This seminar is designed to give an introduction and overview to this important subject and is fully up to date with all developments.

This seminar is designed for people who are not experts in housing finance, but who need to understand the basics and achieve an overview of what is going on. It is suitable for councillors, housing managers, tenant representatives, finance staff who have limited experience of local authority housing finance and others who realise that an understanding of housing finance can place them at an advantage!

Do you think that a working knowledge of local authority housing finance would put you and your colleagues in a position of advantage?

The session will answer the following questions:
  • How does the Housing Revenue Account work?
  • How does the Housing General Fund work?
  • How does the Housing Capital Programme work?
  • What is going on in the world of local authority housing finance?
  • What are the Financial Opportunities and Threats for Local Authority Housing?

The session is also fully up to date and refers to recent government policies on the funding of supported housing; annual reductions in social and affordable rents of 1% and the setting of rents after 2020; voluntary near market rents for tenants on high incomes; the Housing and Planning Act; and the implications of ‘Brexit’.
