Seminar

These sessions have now been postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic. We hope to re-arrange them later in the year. If you would like further information please contact adrian.waite@awics.co.uk

We are holding seminars on ‘Developments in Local Authority Housing Finance’ in May 2020. This seminar looks in depth at current developments in local authority housing finance in England – especially the policies of the new government that was elected in December 2019 as presented in the Conservative manifesto, the Queen’s Speech of December 2019 and the Budget of March 2020; public finances; rent policy; welfare reform including universal credit; homelessness; the reinvigorated ‘right to buy’; the affordable housing programme; the abolition of the borrowing cap; building safety; local housing companies; regeneration schemes and development.

It also looks at potential future developments including those that may be caused by Britain leaving the European Union, measures to address climate change, the sale of high value council homes, 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 new 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.

The session is accompanied by a very useful book entitled: “Developments in Local Authority Housing Finance 2020”
