The session is also fully up to date and refers to the recent social housing green paper and government policies on the 'borrowing cap', 'right to buy' receipts and the funding of supported housing; annual reductions in social and affordable rents of 1% and the setting of rents based on the consumer prices index plus 1% a year after 2020. The session is accompanied by a very useful hundred-page book that is designed for reference after the session entitled: “All You Want to Know About Local Authority Housing Finance 2018”
