Local Authorities, Development and Borrowing Cap

Briefing Paper

It is generally recognised that there is a serious shortage of affordable housing in England. Consequently, many local authorities are building new council houses and many would like to build more. However, they are constrained in their ability to do this by the government imposed 'borrowing cap' that limits their ability to borrow to fund development.

The purpose of this briefing paper is to provide an update on local authorities, development and the borrowing cap.

It includes sections on:

  • Let's Get Building
  • Autumn Statement 2013 and Development
  • Repurchasing
  • Arms' Length Management Organisations
  • Council Subsidiaries
  • Joint Ventures
  • Recent Developments
  • Autumn Statement 2013 and the Borrowing Cap
  • Increased Borrowing Potential
  • Trading Borrowing Capacity
