Developments in Local Authority Housing Finance in England

In-House Training


This session looks in depth at current developments in local authority housing finance in England – especially the implications of the outcome of the 2017 General Election, the Housing White Paper, the Autumn Statement of 2016 and the Budget of 2017, the implementation of the Housing & Planning Act 2016, changes to the funding of supported housing, the vote for Britain to leave the European Union, the affordable housing programme, the public finances, welfare reform, rent reductions, service charges, issues around the reinvigorated ‘right to buy’, sale of high value properties to fund the extension of ‘right to buy’ to housing associations and new development.


The session addresses 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, and to what extent, will the Housing & Planning Act be implemented?
  • How can councils develop effective self-financed business plans?

The session is accompanied by a very useful book for future reference: 'Developments in Local Authority Finance 2017'


Delegates will leave with an understanding of recent developments in Housing Finance, government requirements and targets.
