Developments in Local Authority Housing Finance

Seminar

We are holding seminars on ‘Developments in Local Authority Housing Finance’ in June 2019. This seminar looks in depth at current developments in local authority housing finance in England – especially the implications of government policies, public finances, rent policy, welfare reform including universal credit, the reinvigorated ‘right to buy’, the homelessness reduction act, the flexible homelessness reduction grant, the affordable housing programme (including the new funding for social housing), the abolition of the borrowing cap, local housing companies (what they can offer, how to establish them and how to set one up) and new development.

It also looks at potential future developments including those that may be caused by Britain leaving the European Union, whether the self-financing settlement should be revisited and the future of ‘right to buy’.

If you want to be up to date with the world of local authority housing finance, this is the seminar for you!

The seminar will address the following questions:

  • What is the Political, Economic, Social and Technical Context?
  • What are the implications for local authority housing finance of the government’s policies on housing and welfare?
  • How can councils address the housing crisis by developing new homes?
  • How can councils develop effective self-financed business plans?

Who should attend?

All those with an interest in developments in local authority housing finance in England, including Managers in Local Authorities and Arm’s Length Management Organisations, Elected Members, ALMO Board Members, Housing Accountants and Tenant Representatives. The session will assume a basic knowledge of local authority housing finance but will not assume that delegates are experts.
